Enjoy your bike

Welcome to SWITCH UP, the subscription service that takes the hassle out of cycling and makes travelling around the city safe, easy, and stress-free. Our service is perfect for those who want a reliable and flexible way to get around without the hassle of owning and maintaining a push-bike or electric bike.

Unlike traditional bike share schemes, we provide you with a city-ready bike that’s safe, easy to use, and available whenever you need it. Our cycling support service is also available to ensure that you feel confident and prepared on the road.

Our subscription service comes with a range of features, including:

  1. Flexible membership options, minimum 1-month subscription.
  2. Hassle-free bike ownership, with insurance and 48-hour repairs and replacement included. Access to our drop-in service for any additional support that you may need.
  3. Safe city cycling training to ensure that you’re confident on the road.
  4. Accessories included a lock, lights, mudguards, a kickstand, puncture-proof tires, and a pannier rack.

With SWITCH UP, you can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of cycling without the stress and hassle of ownership. Join us today and discover a better way to travel around the city.
