Welcome to the "Electric-Bike to Work Scheme"

Electric bicycles are the ideal mode for personal transportation. Since the majority of people
commute alone to work each day, electric bikes are ideal substitutes for using your car.

“Every electric bike is one less car-Ditch the car and make your commute cheap and easy”.

The E-Bike Scheme is run solely by Go Electric and complements all existing Cycle-to-Work
schemes.  We offer a range of high quality electric bikes on similar terms to the Cycle-to-Work
scheme but we offer additional savings by cutting out the middleman.

Email us today for an information pack or submit contact details for your current cycle
scheme administrator.

The 3 main barriers to cycling to work in Dublin:

1. Distance

Almost 40% of people working in Dublin's city centre travel less than 5km (just over 3 miles) to work. That's a short distance by electric bike and can be a lot quicker than commuting by car. If you were to cycle 5km to work at an average speed of 20km/hr you'd be in work in 15 minutes! For those of you with a bit further to travel or want to cut your journey in half, why not try an electric bicycle? Our range of electric bikes can travel 50+km’s from one full charge.
Apart from saving money and keeping fit, there’s nothing better than gliding past cars stuck in traffic. One of the best things about E-biking to work is the predictability of journey times. You know pretty much exactly how long it’s going to take you so you can leave the house later.

2. Weather

Dubliners experience an average of just under 800mm rain per year compared with 2800mm in some parts of the west. The average annual rainfall in Dublin is less than that of Amsterdam (804mm), a city that has a strong cycling culture.
For anyone who cycles, light rain isn’t a big issue for short commuter cycles (sure you’d probably get just as wet by the time you walk to the bus stop and wait on a bus!). Heavy rain, however, is a problem. Having said that, considering commuters only face an average of 12 days heavy rain per year, you shouldn’t let this put you off!
Besides, all rain issues, light or heavy, can be easily solved if you have the right raingear. It’s probably worth your while investing in a nice breathable waterproof jacket. You can also get waterproof trousers to wear when the rain is heavy but you needn't bother spending too much on these as you won't get to wear them very often.

3. Effort

Electric bikes cut the effort out of cycling, hills become flat roads and perspiration becomes a thing of the past. The best way to describe the assistance of an electric bike is as Tony Mudd (The Sunday Times, 16/11/08) puts it “it’s a bit like learning to ride with your mum pushing from behind. The degree of aid depended on which setting you chose: economy (mum walking), normal (mum jogging) or what we christened “supermum”, which makes climbing hills about as tough as it is for Superman to fly over a building. You are in full control at all times, without the strain.

They don’t seem like such big barriers anymore…
