New e-bikes and website for ‘Ontdek de e-bike’ (Discover the e-bike)
Maastricht Bereikbaar's test e-bikes have been replaced with an entirely new fleet consisting of 41 e-bikes. The ontdekdeebike.nl website has also been revamped. Everyone in South Limburg can test an e-bike during a week-long trial, starting this autumn.
You can collect the e-bike for the trial at the Cycle Center in Valkenburg. You can then use the e-bike for a week to cycle to work, do your shopping, or tour Limburg. In addition to e-bikes from the well-known brands such as Batavus, Sparta, Cortina, and Kalkhoff, the fleet has welcomed a number of new models such as speed bikes that can reach 45 km/h and are ideal for longer distances, an electric cargo bike for the whole family, and an e-cargo bike that business owners can reserve via www.maastrichtbereikbaar.nl/logistiek.
How does it work?
Visit the ontdekdeebike.nl website and select the e-bike you would like for a trial and check if the bike is still available. E-bikes can be collected on Thursdays from 3:00 PM at the Cycle Center in Valkenburg. After one week, you must return the e-bike on Thursday between 10:00 and 11:00 AM.
