Woo Bike Testimonial- David Woodward

Woo Bike Share provides University of Worcester’s staff and students a convenient and low cost way to travel and exercise. In 2018, 50 electric e-bikes were added to the University’s fleet of 50 pedal bikes, totaling to 100 bikes available for use.

A few students and staff at the University of Worcester participated in a one-week Woo Bike test trial of the electric e-bikes, and agreed to share their experiences.

This week’s testimonial comes from David Woodward, a senior lecturer in the Institute of Education at the University of Worcester.

What did you enjoy about riding a Woo bike?

I felt a good bit of freedom – starting the day the right day. It made it so easy to get from A to B.

Why did you want to try out the Woo bike?

I wanted to try it because I had never tried a Woo bike before, and I wanted to see what it was like.

What are the advantages of riding a Woo bike?

It provides an easy journey to work, thinking time, and I don’t sweat.

Were there any challenges when riding a Woo bike?

It didn’t quite feel like exercise – normally I run into work or cycle to gain a bit of fitness, but it didn’t feel the E-bike gave me this. The bike was also quite heavy.

Would you recommend Woo bikes to other cyclists or those wanting to begin cycling?

Yes I would recommend this bike and I already have.

Is it important to have access to a bike share scheme? Why/Why not?

Yes, I think it is important to have access because it gives people a healthy choice of how to travel.
