The App-Bikes have arrived at Wellington Place

We’re upgrading our free bike hire!

2020 UPDATE: The Wellington Place App Bikes are currently out of use following government guidelines. As, and when restrictions are lifted we hope to make the bikes available again for the use of the Wellington Place community.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve just installed six new App-Bikes on-site at the bike parking unit located by the 4 Wellington Place hoarding opposite 3 Wellington Place. App-Bike is a new and simple way to rent a bike at your convenience and is free to use for all Wellington Place employees!

To use the bikes, download the App-Bike app here and sign up using your work email address (to verify that you are an employee working at Wellington Place). Once logged in, select ‘Wellington Place member’ as the payment option and enter your card details. You will not be charged for the rental of the bike, however card details are required in cases of misuse during rent.

Select the Wellington Place location pin to see how many bikes are available to reserve or rent. When you have booked a bike, simply scan the QR code on the bike to start renting and tap the lock image to unlock the bike. Test the brakes, lights, tyres and adjust the saddle, then you’re all set to go! A pannier, waterproof cover and high vis vest are included with the bike. 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 (we can only accept cash, contact info@wellingtonplace.co.uk).

To end your rental session, simply return the bike to the bike parking units by the 4 Wellington Place hoarding opposite 3 Wellington Place. Lock the bike, making sure that you use the plug-in chain to secure the bike to the parking stand. When the lock is closed you are given the option of stopping the rental, which you will need to confirm.
