Using our e-bikes
The new e-bikes will enable even more Londoners to enjoy the benefits that cycling can bring, from improved health to cleaner air.
How to ride
Find and unlock your e-bike
Look for the lightning symbol on the Santander Cycles app - this shows where you can find e-bikes. Then use the app or your membership key to hire it.
Start pedalling and the e-bike pedal assist will kick in.
An e-bike works just like an ordinary push bike, all of the bike controls are exactly the same as on any other bike, the e-assist will provide support as you pedal.
The e-bike pedal assist will support you up to 25kph. Simply begin pedalling and feel the power.
Dock the bike as normal
When you've finished riding, dock your e-bike into any docking station. When you dock your bike, wait for the green light to show.
