E-Bikes for Bluebird Care

Outspoken Cycles are delighted to be working with local care provider Bluebird Care to help their carers to get between home visits in an environmentally friendly yet very convenient (and enjoyable!) way – E-Bikes!

People have been enjoying riding electric bikes, also known as E-Bikes, for many years. With many companies creating more and more designs for E-Bikes, from traditional Dutch style to folding, E-Bikes are now accessible to everyone and enable eco-friendly, active and simple way to get around.

Bluebird Care are utilising E-bikes to make it easier for their carers to get around to their home visits around Cambridge. We’re providing a regular maintenance plan, including a call out service and spare bike on hand, and have assembled the bikes, including fitting puncture-proof tyres to keep the riders safe and happy on the roads. Cycle training has been provided by our sister company Outspoken Training.

The scheme has already been beneficial to Bluebird Care. Simon Theobald, Director, explained why he made the decision:

‘The concept of providing our staff with E-Bikes has enabled us to provide jobs for people who wish to get into community care but have been prevented from doing so by being unable to drive a car. The training ensures the staff are properly equipped to travel around the busy streets of Cambridge and enables us to fulfil our ‘duty of care’.’
