Give your views on bike hire scheme for Saffron Walden

Uttlesford District Council is asking residents and businesses for their views on bike sharing schemes in Saffron Walden.

Bike sharing is a collective term for when a pool of bikes is made available for people to use rather than having to own or use their own bike.

There are many different types of bike share. In larger towns and cities, bikes are placed on-street with self-service access for one-way hire across a network of parking bays. In some smaller locations, bikes may link up just two or three key locations.

Other schemes often offer pick-up and drop-off in only one location, more like traditional bike hire or longer-term loans to try out cycling bike before buying one.

The council is conducting a short online survey to assess what bike sharing options might work in Saffron Walden and to establish the level of interest in setting up a scheme.

The survey is available on the council's Let's Talk Uttlesford website:
