To celebrate the 200th year of the bicycle, Frome Town Council is working with local partners to trial a local hire scheme for ebikes: “Bike To Health for Frome.”

Cycling helps to improve people’s health and wellbeing but many people are put off using a bicycle in Frome because of the hills. So the town now has a couple of electric power assist bicycles (ebikes) available for people in Frome to hire. The electric assistance helps to reduce the strain of cycling up hills and makes cycling more fun. Provided by Frome Town Council and available at Cycology Bikes Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm for either half day (£5) or whole day (£10) hire.

The Frome Health Connectors will also be able to signpost clients with a discount code to encourage people whose health would benefit from cycling to get involved with the scheme. To find out more about Health Connections visit www.healthconnectionsmendip.org
