No Ordinary Bikeshare

Fast. Affordable. Effortless. 

Derby’s new electric bike sharing scheme has 200 ebikes at 30 hubs across the city.

The technology behind the ebikes is currently only being used in New York and San Francisco and this will be the UK’s largest electric bikeshare scheme.

Customers pay 3p per minute to ride the ebikes (there’s a minimum charge of £1 per rental) after signing up through the Social Bicycles app or via the eBikes Derby website (www.ebikesderby.com) There is a maximum daily charge of £12 and customers can pre-load credit onto their account.

How it works


Register to ride through the eBikes Derby website or the Social Bicycles App for iOS or Android. You will be given a 6 digit account number and you can choose a PIN


Press the green tick to wake up the bike. Enter your 6-digit account number and 4-digit PIN into the keypad on the back of the bike to release the U-lock


Place the U-lock in the holster on the left side of the bike before you take off. To make a temporary stop, press the “HOLD” button and lock the bike to a rack


To end a ride, insert the Ubar to lock your bike to any ebike hub, or if you prefer any public cycle rack (additional fee may be charged). Hubs can be found on the interactive map on the App or website. Check the screen to confirm your rental has ended
