This climate-first e-bike subscription service enables businesses to achieve their sustainability goals, while helping people get back to work. DASH Rides was founded in 2019 by Jamie Milroy and David Watkins, who’d spotted a gap in the urban mobility market.
By removing some of the barriers, for example, cost and insurance, to getting an e-bike, DASH is helping to establish a new generation of cyclists and creating smarter, greener cities, while providing businesses with tools to become carbon neutral. To date, the company has secured £300,000 of funding from angel investors, including a former chairman of Fujitsu and Simon Blagden CBE.
Milroy says: “Our goal is to be a catalyst for positive change by re-engineering the U.K. Cycle to Work scheme and making the electric bike more accessible. Our DASH 4 Work platform makes it faster and simpler for businesses to support getting their staff back to work safely, without imposing any financial or administrative burden, while also enabling them to hit their sustainability targets thanks to each of our e-bikes being carbon offset by 400%.”
