Do you do events / removals / weddings etc?

Yes we do.  You can rent our bikes out (with rider) for £30 / hour in standard garb. We charge £50 / hour if you require our suited and booted service! Jobs outside of London will require extra costs to move the bike – please get in touch for a quote.

Why is my referral code not working?

There are a number of reasons why your referral code may not be working. It’s best to contact us and explain the problem. Please quote your referral code in any communication.

Is it safe?

Cycling in London is, despite public perception, relatively safe.  We ensure all of our staff are extremely well trained – not only to ride our unusual bikes, but also to deal with traffic – and our review system ensures that dangerous riders are given a chance to correct their behaviour before being excluded from the app if this behaviour continues.

What if it rains?

London is one of the driest regions in the UK, with rain on less than 1/3 of all days in the year. In fact, if you commuted by bike for 20 minutes once per week, the chances of getting wet are less than 1/1000! That said, for the occasions when it does rain our passenger bikes are equipped with storm umbrellas and thermal ponchos to keep you warm and dry.
