Here at the FCSA, we've been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to set up a bike scheme that has been funded by Energy Saving Trust and the College.
The project allows students/staff to hire an e-bike to try out. The bikes can be used for commuting, leisure or to increase your health and fitness. Fife College students and staff have the chance to rent out these bikes for £3 per week for students and £5 per week for staff.

My commute is from Edinburgh to Rosyth, a distance of just over 18.5 km each way. The total distance on the e-bike is over 600km by evening after I cycle back home...so that is 600km of car driving prevented by using the e-bike. - Mary
I am loving having it and I use it for this commute 3 times per week. We were a 2 car family - since lockdown, we realised that we didn't really need 2 cars as much. When I heard about the college incentive it seemed ideal - having access to the college electric bike to commute to work felt like the perfect time to reduce our household's carbon footprint. I use the bike for loads of things now, not just my work commute. It's also having a positive effect on my physical and mental health.....arriving at work feeling full of energy and fresh air! - Gill
