For those hoping to find a more environmentally-friendly way to travel this summer, you will soon be able to hire a bike to use outside of central London.

The new bike rental scheme, Beryl Bikes, will be launched in Enfield with the rollout of 350 emerald bikes on June 28.

The bikes can be picked up and dropped off at ‘Beryl Bays’, which have been approved in conjunction with Enfield Council to be placed outside locations like Broomfield Park, Enfield Chase and Arnos Grove station.

Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment and sustainability, Councillor Guney Dogan, said: “By providing cost effective cycling options along with secure cycle hubs and plenty of bike parking opportunities alongside the network of lanes, Enfield Council hopes many more people will make cycling their health and accessible transportation choice for those short trips around the borough.”

Once you have downloaded the Beryl app from the iOS App store or Google Play Store, bikes can be hired with a Pay-As-You-Ride scheme (£1 unlock fee + 5p per minute), Minute Bundles (no unlock fee, bundles starting at 100 minutes for £5) or Day Passes (24 hours of unlimited riding for £12).

London Climate Action Week, where Londoners are encouraged to explore clean energy solutions and zero-emissions transport, takes place shortly after the introduction of the bikes on July 1 to July 8.

Beryl will be rivalling existing mobile bike rental schemes like Mobike and Ofo.
