RVA E-Bike Library

In partnership with Wheel Simple, RVA E-Bikes! is hosting a Richmond e-bike library. You can borrow an e-bike for up to 2 weeks from the library, to try out an e-bike for yourself!


We currently have two e-bikes models available:

How it works

  • Anyone can borrow one (though we reserve the right to refuse to allow a check out for any reason). Borrows are up to two weeks - and completely free!
  • Must be at least 18 to check out an e-bike
  • You will be required to sign the following waiver when checking out a bike from the shop. We will also take a photocopy of a photo ID (any photo ID will do)

The RVA E-Bikes! program is run by me, Charles Yang. I’m a born and raised Richmonder and I also started RVA YIMBY, a grassroots housing advocacy group.

We welcome donations and volunteers if you’d like to support our mission and help cover our costs.
