How does it work?
To hire a bike, users need to download the ‘Beryl Cycle Hire’ app. Later this year, they will also be available via the new ‘Swift’ app.
Bikes will cost £1 to unlock and 5p per minute after that, meaning a 20-minute cycle ride will cost £2 and £4 for an hour. People pay for their ride by linking their account to their debit or credit card.
However the scheme is also offering the first 30 minutes free for anyone who signs up via the app.
The pedal cycles have three gears to cope with hilly roads and are fitted with high quality laser safety lights.
Once finished with the bike, people will need to find their nearest docking station to park up, closing the lock to end your ride.
