Jack is the news editor here at eBikeTips, and also edits the live blog and writes tech news over on our sister site Jack first became fascinated with e-bikes when an elderly gentleman breezed past him without a care in the world up a big old hill in North Wales - thus realising e-bikes are the real deal! Although he genuinely enjoys time trials and lung-busting climbs without assistance, Jack likes nothing more than cruising round town on an e-bike during his days off.

While the bike might be different, the idea and model is nothing new, my sister lives in Holland and uses Swapfiets on a subscription, depending on her work needs, normally just 6 months subscription at a time, then doesn't keep it through winter. During lockdown she's been using it a lot more and making appointments to get servicing done is all through an app, then show up at the shop. If it's not fixable there and then, they'll give you another bike.
