E-bikes are becoming increasingly popular for longer journeys.

Safe mobility

Many businesses have reopened, but many people are still working from home. This is relieving pressure on the roads and in public transport. That's why Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar is helping to ensure safe mobility for all. Making e-bikes and high-speed e-bikes available is part of that effort.

How does it work?

Visit ontdekdeebike.nl and select the bicycle that suits you best. To ensure that people can maintain sufficient distance on 1 July, we will make use of a number of time slots. This means that you must select the time slot before you collect your bicycle. If someone has already reserved your preferred bicycle, then try again in another time slot.
