10% of our profits from electric bike and electric scooter sales will be donated to Sustrans via Work for Good.

With every order of an e-bike or e-scooter through Pedal & Chain, you are contributing to the brilliant work Sustrans are doing.

Why Sustrans?

Sustrans are the UK charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. The work they do creates healthier places and happier people. This aligns perfectly with our mission to enable people to be kinder to themselves and the planet.

They are custodians of the National Cycle Network, a UK-wide network of traffic-free paths for everyone, connecting cities, towns and countryside, loved by the communities they serve.


What difference can you make?

50,000 people a year die prematurely in the UK from exposure to the poor air quality on our busy city streets. Cars internally recirculate the pollution giving their occupants a double dose! Cyclists have much less exposure and an e-bike rider using quieter roads has practically none.

Sustrans brings people together to create places with clean air and green spaces, where friends and facilities are just a short walk away.

When you order an electric bike or e-scooter from Pedal & Chain, you are making a difference to communities across the UK.
