No Sweat in the City If You Rent an Electric Bike from Hertz London

June 29, 2011 at 11:02 AM | by | ()

We know that there's plenty of spots to score a rental bike, rental car, or electric rental car, but there really haven't been too many options when it comes to finding and borrowing an electric rental bike. Hertz is about to change that, as they're moving from providing four-wheeled transportation options to two-wheeled as well.

In response to London's mission to turn the city into one of the leading electric vehicle destinations in the world, Hertz has begun to offer up some electric bikes for one and all from their Marble Arch branch in the city. Just £20 will get you access to a bike for the whole day, and not having to pedal your way around the city will probably be quite handy during the warm summer months.

Ultra Motor is helping out Hertz with this latest endeavor with Fast4ward Edge and A2B Hybrid 24 models, and there's always the option to use human power too just in case you don't feel like zipping effortlessly through the streets of the city at up to 15 miles per hour. You'll also get everything you need to have a great day on the roads, as Hertz promises to throw in a lock, helmet, a little training, and a bike guide to the city.

It might be a little more pricey-especially with the conversion rate-but it sounds like a fun alternative to Barclays Cycle Hire.

It would be a great alternative, but there's no mention of drop off points. Also what if you only need to use the bike a few hours, you'll still pay a full £20?
