Julian Scriven, UK MD of nextbike, expressed his passion for putting community at the heart of the Cardiff scheme.
“Our vision as a business is to make our scheme inclusive and incorporate the community into everything we do which is why we are passionate to put the people of Cardiff as the face of the scheme.
“Listening to the people of Cardiff will be the key to making the scheme as successful as possible, so having ambassadors on the ground who are using the scheme day in day out and can feed back directly to us is a wonderful opportunity.”
nextbikes are available 24 hours a day and users can register and hire bikes in just a couple of minutes. The cycle-share scheme is one of the cheapest ways to get around Cardiff, with an annual membership costing just £60 and includes the first 30 minutes of cycling for free.
“We have been running our ambassador scheme in all the towns and cities we operate within and have found that it is an incredible way to encourage the whole community and people from all backgrounds to get on two wheels,” explained Mr Scriven.
“One of our Glaswegian ambassadors, Sandra Barr, has even set up her own all female cycling classes using nextbikes to improve the fitness and confidence of women within the area after she used the city’s bike share scheme to help her shed six stone.
“Sandra is truly amazing and is a complete inspiration and we feel very privileged to have her represent us.
“We are really looking forward to having more inspirational community members become our ambassadors in Cardiff.”
