A2B has acquired the Electric Bicycle Network to establish a ‘cost-effective, sustainable form of transportation throughout the UK’.
The Electric Bicycle Network currently provides over 5,000 e-bike rentals a year for visitors to some of the largest national parks in the UK, including the Lake District, The Peak District, the Chilterns and the Cairngorms.
“Since establishing the network in 2011, our aim was to provide a completely new, green, quality customer experience for as many consumers across the UK as possible,” explained Steve Garidis, co-founder of the Electric Bicycle Network. “To make that a reality, we needed to find an organisation that had the ability, desire and fit to make that happen on a wider scale – we found that in A2B.”
According to the press release, acquiring the UK’s Electric Bicycle Network reinforces A2B’s commitments to raise awareness of the benefits of electric bicycles globally, and it continues to work alongside a number of e-bike charitable foundations, including Cycology in South Africa and Italy.
Fernando Kuefer, General Manager of A2B said: “A2B is very excited to be a part of the Electric Bicycle Network. Our aim is to establish relationships with more UK leisure and tourism organisations so that even more people can discover the benefits of e-bikes and enjoy our fantastic local landscapes in an easy, fun and environmentally sound way.”
