BERYL BIKES: Electronic cycling in Croxley gets the green light in push for sustainable travel

 Published on: 3rd March 2024   |   By: Sophia Sheera   |   Category: Uncategorized

Cyclists will be able to hire e-bikes in Croxley by the end of this month, following a Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) decision to expand the popular scheme over the next two years.

Residents will be able to ride on the turquoise Beryl bikes to and from Watford and Bushey, and across the district more widely.

TRDC will contribute £45,000 from its sustainable travel budgets for the two-year pilot to fund 15 Beryl bikes at five sites. The five locations in Croxley are being finalised and may need Hertfordshire County Council approval, but they are expected to include points at the library and train station, as well as the shopping parade in Baldwins Lane and near All Saints’ Church.

It is hoped that the e-bikes will be live by the end of March if not earlier.

Councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst, deputy leader of TRDC, said: “This is great news and is something I and the council have pushed for over three years. Now with joint agreement with Watford and funding from Three Rivers, this is a reality.”
