Ebike Hire

Cycling is one of the best ways to get around, although the surrounding hills can be a bit of a challenge. Frome has a local hire scheme for electric bicycles, which can help out on the tough bits.

To celebrate the 200th year of the bicycle, Frome Town Council worked with local partners to create a local hire scheme for ebikes: “Bike To Health for Frome.” The town now has a couple of electric power assist bicycles (ebikes) available for people in Frome to hire. The electric assistance helps to reduce the strain of cycling up hills and makes cycling more fun.

Our Ebikes are looked after by Pronto Bikes on Bath Street and need to be booked below.

Read the Ebike hire terms and conditions.

Pronto opening hours are:
Mon, Tues, Thurs 9am – 5pm
Wed 9am -12pm
Fri, Sat 9am – 4pm

For more info or help booking an ebike, email info@frometowncouncil.gov.uk or call 01373 465757.

Frome Health Connectors

The Frome Health Connections is also able to signpost clients with a discount code to encourage those whose health would benefit from cycling to get involved with the scheme. To find out more about Health Connections visit www.healthconnectionsmendip.org
