A Network of Electric Bicycles are set up in Henley-On-Thames
The picturesque town of Henley-On-Thames in Oxfordshire is already a real hub for tourists and there is a strong network of businesses there to cater for them. The new Electric Bicycle Network is aimed at increasing the number of cycle users in the town, increasing cycle tourism and will hopefully lead to a much wider change in transport and leisure behaviours.
We’re very excited to have an Electric Bike Network in Henley as part of Cycle Chilterns
Senior Development Officer - Cycle Chilterns, Sara Randle
The first Chilterns EBN has been funded by the Cycle Chilterns project and is one of 8 networks in the UK. It will give hundreds of people a new opportunity to enjoy the freedom of cycling within the beautiful Chiltern Hills scenery. The bikes offer an electric powered boost to those who don’t feel fit or confident enough to tackle a bike ride unassisted and they certainly make light work of any hills along the way.
**UPDATE** August 2013 - The network now has four hire points with a total of 8 bikes and five charge points.
- Henley Cycles
- Swiss Farm Touring & Camping
- Chiltern Valley Winery & Brewery
- new Hurley Riverside Park
Charge points are located at:
- Stag & Huntsman, Hambleden
- new The Rainbow Inn, Middle Assendon
- new Warburg Nature Reserve
- new The Quince Tree, Stonor
- new Fox & Hounds, Christmas Common

As part of the Cycle Chilterns project, hosted by CTC and the local authorities, the EBN will help promote the area as a cycle-friendly hotspot for tourists and will link in with the other networks in the UK, including the Lake District.
