To kick off the festive season, we're partnering with BCP Council to give you free rides to help get your Christmas shopping done or attend festivities.

Every user can take two pedal bike rides up to 30 minutes long per day which will automatically be free of charge.

Rides must end in a Beryl bay. The discount will be automatically applied at the end of the ride.

How do I access the free rides?

All users in BCP will automatically be able to access the free rides. If you don't have an account yet, download the Beryl app and follow the simple steps to sign up. You'll need to add your card details to hire a bike, but you won't be charged for pedal bike rides up to 30 minutes ending in a Beryl Bay, maximum two per day.

How many free rides do I get?

Every user can get 2 free pedal bike rides per day, up to thirty minutes ending in a Beryl Bay during the the free weekends. The usual charges for locking the bike out of bay or outside the Beryl operating zone will apply.

What happens to if I have a Minute Bundle?

If you already have a minute bundle, the minutes will not be deducted from your account so you can keep them for later.

Can I ride for longer than 30 minutes?

Only the first 30 minutes of a ride are free. If your ride is longer than 30 minutes, you'll be charged our standard rate for the remainder of your ride (5p per minute on pedal bikes.

Are scooter rides free?

No. The free rides apply to pedal bikes only.

Do I need to have a payment card associated to my account?

You must have a valid payment card registered on your account in order to unlock a bike, even during the promotion. Our system will run a pre-authorisation check on your card when you attempt to unlock a bike and you must have at least £1 available on the card in order to pass this check. This is to ensure you have funds available for any out of bay or out of zone fees you may incur.
