What will they think of next? Instead of renting a car, how about taking a spin on an e-bike? If you are visiting or live in London, you can rent one of 12 available e-bikes at the local Hertz Rental.
Car rental company Hertz has claimed an industry first by offering electric bicycles for hire. The scheme is initially only available in London, with a total of 12 bikes, but if successful it could be rolled out to other cycling friendly cities such as Amsterdam.
The models chosen by Hertz are the Fast4ward Edge, a folding bike which offers the choice of using throttle and cruise power or to pedal, and the A2B Hybrid 24, which has a sensor that detects the amount of pedalling and applies power in tune with that pace.
