Tutored Biking Sessions – During your eBike loan period we would encourage you to join us on Better Biking and Maintenance sessions. Using both on and off road routes from our EcoHub in Brodick, our qualified staff can improve skills and confidence using techniques in communication, road positioning and bike handling. Each session lasts approximately 2 hours and can be delivered individually or in small groups, sessions could be extended into longer rides on request. Contact emma@arranecosavvy.org.uk for more information and availability. View our 2023 calendar of events to register your interest.

Borrow an eBike

Over the last few years Arran Eco Savvy has delivered specific eBike loan schemes focusing on island workforces, key workers and ’20 minute neighbourhoods’ all taking advantage of our eBikes for many different reasons.

For 2023 we’re simply offering anyone on Arran the chance to experience our eBikes for fun and health benefits, they’re perfect for nipping to the shops, meeting up at the café, visiting friends and staying healthy, they’ll even get you around the island if you fancy a bigger adventure. Through past experience we have found that being able to ride eBikes with others has greatly enhanced use and enjoyment. If you’d like to borrow two eBikes with a partner, we’ll do our best to accommodate that.

Once you’ve finished and enjoyed your eBike experience with Eco Savvy, we hope you might be tempted to buy your own, helping to reduce carbon and car use and keeping you fit and active.

If so, you can now borrow up to £6,000 interest-free towards the cost of ebikes or adapted cycles, thanks to funding from Transport Scotland (an agency of the Scottish Government).
