A new bicycle rental scheme, Beryl Bikes, which has seen 225 pedal bikes crop up around Norwich, has been launched.

Cyclists will be able to pick up bikes from 47 locations throughout the city centre and the surrounding area, including Broadland Business Park. The number of locations will jump to 70 in the coming months. 

Bikes will cost £1 to unlock and riders will be charged 5p per minute through the Pay-As-You Ride option.

But a minutes bundle, which has no unlock fee and starts at 100 minutes for £5, and a day pass, which covers 24 hours of unlimited rising for £12, are also available.

Phillip Ellis, Beryl CEO, said: “We hope that by bringing our innovative scheme to the area, which will have both pedal and electric-assisted bicycles, it will have a positive effect on the local environment, encourage more people to use the excellent cycling infrastructure that Norwich already has in place and bring a bit more fun into people’s daily routines.”
