About Upper Valley E-Bike Lending Library
The Upper Valley E-Bike Lending Library is a selection of four e-bikes of assorted styles and retail costs, from a “cargo e-bike” that can haul groceries or kids to a lighter-weight “commuter e-bike.” People can borrow and try these e-bikes for free to discover what e-bikes are really like and consider whether one could become part of their everyday lives. So far, more than a third of the people who have borrowed Library bikes said they plan to buy one of their own.
In 2022, the Library will travel to 13 Upper Valley towns and one workplace (Hypertherm). While the e-bike is stationed in a particular place, residents from that town (or employees of the workplace) can sign up to borrow one of the e-bikes for 1-3 days. Many of the articulating towns also will hold “Demo Days” at which people can see all four e-bikes and take them for quick spins.
