*The Wellington Place App Bikes are currently out of use following government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. As, and when restrictions are lifted we hope to make the bikes available again for the use of the Wellington Place community.
We hope that cycling offers a convenient, cost-effective and most of all, environmentally-friendly mode of transport for employees at Wellington Place and we are keen to do all we can to promote the benefits.
App-Bikes are ideal for attending meetings in other areas of the city or for a lunchtime cycle along the tarmacked Leeds & Liverpool canal towpath. There are a number of on- and off-road cycle routes leading to Wellington Place including the Cycle Superhighway, Whitehall Road and the canal towpath. The West Yorkshire Cycle Map shows all the cycle routes around Wellington Place.
There are 7 bikes stored by the 4 Wellington Place hoarding opposite 3 Wellington Place, including an electric bike*, which can be hired by Wellington Place employees for free using the App-Bike app. Bikes can be reserved up to 3 hours prior to when you want to use them, or you can hire them immediately.

Please test the brakes, lights, tyres are all working, and adjust the saddle before riding. A pannier, high vis vest and waterproof cover are included with the bike hire. Helmets are not included, and although they are not essential, we would highly recommend that you wear one. You can purchase a helmet for £25 (email email@example.com to arrange, and please note payment must be in cash).
If you experience any issues while using the bikes, please contact App-Bike customer support directly on 01892320270. If you want to use the electric bike and the remaining charge on the battery means the range is less than how far you intend to go, please contact the security team on 0113 246 8399 or visit them at 3 Wellington Place (during office hours only). They will swap the battery for one that is fully charged. You can check the range of the battery by activating the onboard screen and clicking through the options. The electric bike will extend the distance you would usually ride and can give more assistance on hills if you choose.
