To celebrate Summer, Beryl are offering free rides on pedal bikes in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole scheme. From 1st July to 30th September, all pedal bike rides that begin and end between 5am and 10am will be free for the first 30 minutes, and will have free unlock.

Where are free rides available?

Free rides will be available for all our pedal bikes in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area.

When are the rides available?

The offer runs from Saturday 1st July to Saturday 30th September, 7 days a week, for rides that start and finish between 5am - 10am.

How do I claim my free rides?

All pedal bikes rides in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area from 5am - 10am will automatically have 30 minutes and the unlock fee deducted at the end of your ride.

If you don't have an account yet, download the Beryl app here and follow the simple steps to sign up. You'll need to add your card details to hire a bike - this will only be charged if you end a ride out of a Beryl designed bay or out of the designated zone, or your ride exceeds the free period (see below).

How long can I ride for free?

The offer provides free unlock and 30 minutes riding free.

Can I ride for longer than 30 minutes?

If your ride is longer than 30 minutes, you'll be charged our standard rate for the remainder of your ride (5p per minute) or minutes will be deducted from your minute balance.

How many free rides can I take?

The offer is available for one free ride per person per day. Only the first 30 minutes of the ride will be free of charge.

Will I have to pay out of bay and out of zone fees?

Yes, all out of bay and out of zone fees apply during the free riding promotion.

BCP out-of-bay fee: £5

BCP out-of-zone fee: £10

BCP unlocked bike fee: £10

Remember you can lock your bike and pause your ride for up to 15 minutes without out of bay/out of zone fees (for example if you need to drop into a shop or go to the loo!) The time limits for free rides include any time your ride is paused.

What happens to my Minute Bundle during the promotion period?

If you already have a minute bundle, the minutes will remain in your account and will be there waiting for you to use once the free riding period is over.

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

You must have a valid payment card registered on your account in order to unlock a bike, even during a free ride 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 incur.
