Welcome to our announcements page

You are currently viewing the old CycleCharge website and we are now working on a new website based on Web 3.0 technology optimised for mobile devices.

Expect things some areas of this old site not to function for the time being, as we're currently moving to a new green web host. The new site is running on the popular WordPress platform and will open during the next few weeks.

We have loads of smart features planned for the new site including Charge Point blogging and announcements, visitor ratings and reviews, an online store for CycleCharge batteries, and more sophisticated mobile and GPS optimised mapping for locating Charge Points.

As usual, we welcome support from volunteers. If you have some time to spare and would like to get involved in your local area, then please do get in touch.

We also welcome support and assistance in the following areas:

  • Battery building, testing, recycling and repair
  • Fund-raising and financial assistance
  • New Charge Point introductions and registration
  • Articles and content submissions for the website

If you can help in any of these areas or have any other skills you think might be useful, please do get in touch.

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.
