Jersey Post is phasing out its traditional 3-geared postal bikes.

Instead the company has added a further 20 electric bicycles to its fleet, bringing the total to 35.

They can carry up to 100lb of cargo and will allow postal workers to move heavier loads more quickly.

The electric bikes are a great addition to our fleet. With the increase of parcel volumes and lead up to Christmas, these eBikes will be able to support our postal workers and provide more timely deliveries by allowing them to take more volume and weight, especially on days with full, heavy postal rounds to deliver to.
