Residents of a north-east town are to be given an e-bike taster session as part of a push to encourage more people to cycle.
Aberdeenshire Council will hold the event in Ellon later this month to “dispel any myths” surrounding pedal-assisted or electric bicycles.
It is launching the scheme to reduce traffic and pollution, and help meet climate change goals.
Transportations strategy team leader Chris Menzies said: “With the issues around climate change high on the agenda, anything we can do to encourage a simple change in behaviour which reduces carbon emissions has to be welcomed.
“Bikes might not be the answer for everyone, but e-bikes are a fantastic enabler as either a commuting option or for a quick trip to the local shop – it all makes a difference.”
The session will be held from 11am-1pm at Gordon Park, Ellon, on February 15.
