Corinthia London is collaborating with British bike-maker Brompton for those looking to ride around the city in a sustainable way—on a fleet of electric and classic bicycles.
The electric Brompton Bike can be used for up to 50 miles per charge and are available from the hotel’s concierge to all guests. It can be folded up, which allows travelers to still use various modes of transport. A fixed charging dock is situated outside the entrance on Whitehall Place, Westminster.
Julian Scriven, managing director of Brompton Bike Hire, says the collaboration is a vehicle to a sustainable future.
“This new partnership is a step in the right direction to support of the new Ultra-Low Emission Zone. We are dedicated to improve our carbon footprint,” said Scriven in a written statement.
The Brompton Bikes are available to use for all hotel guests, subject to availability.
Corinthia London is a 283-room hotel situated near The Thames, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace. Services include a spa, ESPALife at Corinthia, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill and The Northall.
Brompton Bike Hire launched in April 2011 with a mission to create bicycles that are accessible to all, easy and cheap to install and run, economical to use, not dependent on state subsidies, flexible and compact. It is the sister company of Brompton Bicycle.
In other Corinthia Hotels news, the company is branching out to the Middle East. Corinthia Meydan Beach Dubai will be located on the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) beachfront in 2020.
