E-cycle confidenceBack home

Complete your cycle confidence session on an electric bike (e-cycle)!

We are working with various e-cycle hire shops across the county and Co Bikes to allow you to build your confidence in riding an e-cycle.

What’s on offer?

Exeter and Cranbrook

If you don’t already have a Co Bikes membership and you would like to complete your e-cycle confidence in Exeter or Cranbrook using a Co Bike*, you are eligible for a voucher enabling you to hire a Co Bike for FREE.

Co Bikes can be hired from any of the Co Bike stations in Exeter and Cranbrook.


Across the rest of the county, you can hire an e-cycle for FREE at one of the participating e-cycle hire shops to do your e-cycle confidence session.

Using your own e-cycle

If you would like to complete your session on your own e-cycle, please make sure it complies with National Government rules for e-cycles.
