Bike & Go To Open At Ainsdale Station

Station & Service Updates

26 August 2016

A highly acclaimed bike hire scheme is set to launch in Ainsdale.

We are delighted to launch our new bike hire facility at beautiful Ainsdale, which will offer those without a bike the opportunity to experience this very special area on two wheels.

Linda van der Haar

Bike & Go Business Manager

Bike & Go, which currently operates from a number of stations across Merseyside, including Formby and Southport, will open at Ainsdale train station this Friday, August 26. The scheme was recently praised by a UK division of the travel giant TripAdvisor when it was included in a list of the top seven bicycle hire companies drawn up by its subsidiary rental company Holiday Lettings. And to mark the opening, Bike & Go are offering free rentals to new and existing subscribers to the scheme until Friday, September 2.

Linda van der Haar, Bike & Go Business Manager, said: “We are delighted to launch our new bike hire facility at beautiful Ainsdale, which will offer those without a bike the opportunity to experience this very special area on two wheels, in particular the Sefton Coastal Path, which has some cycle-friendly parts and is easily reached from the station.”

Bike & Go offers bike hire facilities from almost 70 participating train stations across much of the North West, North East and Yorkshire, East and South East of England, and Scotland, with more locations opening this year.

To hire a Bike & Go bike, users simply need to register their card details online, which they can do via smart phones, tablets, or at home, and pay the annual £10 subscription fee. They will then receive a user number via email which will allow immediate bike hire at just £3.80 for 24 hours whilst they wait for their Bike & Go membership card.
