A network of electric bicycles is being launched in Henley-On-Thames.

From the end of the June it will be possible to hire bikes from:
  • Henley Cycles
  • Swiss Farm Touring & Camping
  • The Chilterns Valley Winery
The hire points will also join Cyclists Welcome, the CTC's nationwide directory of cycle friendly businesses.
