Equipment supplied will need to be 'electrically assisted pedal cycles' (EAPCs). 7. The electric bikes supplied must have pedals that can be used and must meet the Government's EAPC requirements ( 8. There will be no restrictions on choice of brands for both bikes and/or trikes. However, the bikes will need to be suitable for use on a variety of roads, cycle paths and routes in the villages of South Cambridgeshire. 9. The supplier will need to supply between two and fifteen electric bikes and/or trikes (dependent on the requirements of our grant scheme applicants). 10. The Supplier shall ensure that an after-sales service is in place, which includes allowing our successful grant applicants to return to retailers within six weeks of purchase to carry out a free check on any cycle. 11. The supplier will ensure all bikes and/or trikes come with at least a one year warranty on all components, including the battery. 12. The supplier will guarantee that prices quoted will be fixed for 6 months after the award confirmation date of 14/12/2020. 13.
