The Isle of Wight Council ("the Authority") invites Tenders from suitably qualified suppliers ("Potential Suppliers") for the provision of E-Cycle Roadshow, E-Cycle Corridors and Peer-To-Peer E-Cycle Share.
The Contract is divided into Lots as follows:
Lot 1 - E-Cycle Roadshow
This project will establish an e-cycle roadshow offering potential users the opportunity to try e-cycles in a safe setting. The project will engage with a wide variety of locations at which to deploy a mobile e-cycle roadshow to motivate and enthuse a minimum of 1000 first time users of e-bikes, focusing on women, people with health issues or a disability, and older people. The term of the contract shall be 01 September 2021 for a period of 6 months with the option to extend for up to a further 3 months at the sole discretion of the Authority.
Lot 2 - E-Cycle Corridor
This project will focus on encouraging residents of Newport and Cowes to replace private cars with e-cycles for regular trips between the towns.
The project requires the recruitment of a minimum of 48 project participants, which will be provided with free access to e-bikes for the period of participation, and incentivised to use them. To deliver the project with a limited fleet of e-cycles, it is anticipated that each participant will have free access to an e-cycle for about a month, and commit to sharing journey and user experience insight with the supplier and client. The term of the contract shall be 01 September 2021 for a period of 6 months with the option to extend for up to a further 3 months at the sole discretion of the Authority.
Lot 3 - Peer-To-Peer E-Cycle Share
This project will establish a Peer to Peer Cycle Share scheme on the Isle of Wight, enabling participating existing e-cycle owners to hire their bikes to others. The objective is to increase utilisation of existing e-cycle assets on the Island. The term of the contract shall be 1 September 2021 for a period of 8 months with the option to extend for a further 3 months at the sole discretion of the Authority.
