Latest News

8th December 2014: After a long hatius with the Cyclecharge project, there have been some significant developments in the last quarter of 2014. CycleCharge is now CycleCharge Limited, a non-profit company limited by guarantee. Paul Rogers (Project Manager) and Lynda Graves (Regional Organiser) are now joint Trustee Directors. We hope to invite others onto the board in due course. What started as an informal project with volunteers, is now a recognised legal company . The reasons for this move are three fold; to facilitate easier fund-raising and the application of government subsidy and grants. To faciliate application for partial charity/tax-exemption status. To enable CycleCharge to begin offering cheap affordable e-bike batteries. The last objective is a significant change from CycleCharge's original purpose, providing public charge points. The timing of this has a lot to do with EU and government policy changes concerning moving towards a low carbon economy. This provides significant opportunities for CycleCharge to contribute towards helping lower CO2 by promoting the use of e-bikes and making them more affordable. We are currently in the process of moving to a new host and establishing a new more modern website which will be completed over the coming weeks.
