Beryl Bikes and COVID-19

Our team in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole works hard to keep all bikes and scooters clean and safe for riders. However, due to the way that bikes and scooters move around the operating area, it’s not possible to disinfect every bike after each ride. We ask all riders to take note of the following precautions so we can keep Beryl Bikes and e-Scooters safe for everyone:

  • Please wash your hands before and after using a Beryl Bike or e-Scooter
  • Carry alcohol-based hand sanitizer with you if you don’t have a place to wash your hands
  • If you have antibacterial wipes, you can use them to wipe down handlebars and seat posts before riding
  • Please respect government guidelines around social distancing from people outside your household, and give pedestrians and other cyclists space on narrow shared use paths and busy areas

 

Why should you try bike or e-scooter sharing?

  • It's a great and active way to explore and travel around the the local area
  • It’s super convenient as you can choose where you pick up and drop off your bike or e-scooter.
  • Rides start from only 5p per minute.
  • Help make Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole greener!

 

 

Tips for riding Beryl e-Scooters 

Beryl e-Scooters are part of a UK-wide government trial which supports green and environmentally friendly ways to travel as well as providing a socially distanced way to travel throughout the pandemic. Unlike private scooters, Beryl scooters are legal on public roads and riders are covered by Beryl’s insurance.  The scooters have a speed cap of 12.5mph and they gradually reduce speed if the rider enters an area where they are not permitted, these are highlighted in the app, and include the promenade in July and August and Christchurch.

  • To ride a Beryl e-Scooter you must be 16+ with and have a UK-valid full or provisional driving licence.
  • You can only ride on using your own Beryl account with your driving licence
  • Scooters are just another form of transport and as such should only be used on the highway or in dedicated cycle lanes. Only ride in cycle lanes or on the road.
  • For more information on riding a Beryl scooter, check the Beryl Help pages
