e-Bikes Available for Curbside Loan and Test Rides

Want to try out an electric bicycle? Norwich Public Library has once again partnered with the Norwich Energy Committee to host e-Bikes beginning June 14. Sign-ups will be available for overnight loans and test rides. 

The e-Bikes are made possible through the Upper Valley e-Bike Lending Library via Burlington-based Local Motion and their program sponsors and partners. NPL will host the bikes for three weeks.

Reserving an e-Bike for Overnight Loan

e-Bike reservations for overnight loans are made through Local Motion’s Upper Valley e-bike booking page. Two-day loans are available on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Pick-up and drop-off must take place during a curbside appointment. After reserving an e-Bike, you will be asked to contact an Energy Committee member  to confirm pick-up and drop-off times. Please wait for confirmation from a volunteer before heading to the library for pick-up. Please note that the library holds different hours than the e-Bike program. 

There are four different e-bikes to try out for loan. Locks and bicycle helmets will circulate with the e-Bikes.

Reserving Test Rides @ NPL

30 and 60 minute test rides are available Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, and and can be reserved through Local Motion’s online booking page.

All e-Bikes will be cleaned through a vetted process and test ride and loan pickups and drop-offs follow social distancing guidelines. We ask that masks are worn during pickup.
