ReadyBike comes to Church Ward


Church ward Councillors at the ReadyBike post in Academy sport.

Last month a new cycle hire scheme was launched in Reading called ReadyBike. People can now use the distinctive purple and orange bikes located across 27 docking stations in Reading. A 28th and 29th docking station – on the south side of Reading Station and at Earley Station – will be operational later this summer.

For members, use of ReadyBike is free for half an hour at the start of every rental and then £1 a hour after that, with a maximum rental cap of £4. As well as the place to register, is also where members can top-up and manage their accounts – a bit like you do with a ‘pay as you’ go mobile phone account. Annual membership costs £50.

For people who do not want to be members, ReadyBike is also available for occasional or one-off use by users registering their details online. The tariff for non-members is the same as that for members (£1 an hour) but they do not get the first 30 minutes of every rental free and the maximum rental charge is £7.

Docking stations in Church Ward are located at Christchurch Green by the University and Academy Sport on Northumberland Avenue.  Happy cycling!
