What is hirebike
hirebike is a 24 hour on-street bike hire service, providing bicycles for hire for residents, commuters and visitors across Lincoln.
How does it work?
hirebike is very simple. Ideally download the app or sign up on the website as either a casual or annual member. Alternatively you can call us on 01522 370 143. Once you've signed up as a member, you'll receive a membership number and PIN. Simply key in your membership number and PIN at any of the stations and select a bike to rent. You can return the bike to any station, not just the one you rented it from.

***** E-bike Specific Questions *****
Do I need a license for an e-bike?
How fast do the e-bikes go?
How do I make the e-bike work?
When you have undocked the e-bike, you will need to press the on button on the left handlebar to turn the bike on. You can tell the bike is on at any time as the front lights will be on, and the rear light will be flashing. Please watch the ‘How to Use’ video for more information and we strongly recommend watching it prior to your first e-bike hire.
