Berlin, Copenhagen, Barcelona & now Worthing – welcome Donkey Bikes! Judy Fox, Discover Worthing’s Visitor Experience and Marketing Officer is back on the blog!
You’ve heard all about them – you’ve seen them dotted around the town (they’re bright orange so you can hardly miss them). Yes, we are proud to announce that Donkey Bikes have now officially landed in Worthing.
Joining a star studded line up of cities including Berlin, Barcelona and Copenhagen, Worthing has joined the bike sharing revolution with this 24/7 app based Bike Hire scheme.
already we’ve smashed through the 100 user mark. If you haven’t already taken one of these little beauties for a spin then – what are you waiting for? These bikes are brand new, super comfortable and easy to ride and yours for only £6 for 2 hours.
Even better if you pick up a copy of the Worthing Herald during August you’ll find a discount code for a further 25% of the hire cost.
To unlock and book your bike simply download the Donkey Bike app and turn on your Bluetooth – the bike locations will pop up on the map – the Lido, Pavilion Theatre, Steyne Gardens and Windsor Road Shelter.
Choose how long to want hire the bike for – 2 hours, 4 hours or longer, as you please. Once you’ve put in your personal and card details, to unlock the bike simply follow instructions and hold your phone to the bike lock and with the wonders of technology – bingo! you’re away …
As locals you’ll know how great Worthing is for cycling but if you are stuck for ideas we’ve put lots of inspiration on the Discover Worthing website, with routes to suit all abilities and appetites – west to the West End Café or east to Shoreham and up to Bramber Castle or onwards to Brighton.
Don’t forget the prevailing wind generally blows from west to east but if you run out of steam you can always pop your bike on the train home! Simples!
