Tern to give away GSDs to non-profit organisations

Urban bike brand, Tern, has announced it is giving away five GSDs to non-profit organisations around the world looking to replace cars and motor vehicles in their daily tasks.

Every year, the sustainable-minded brand gives away 1% of its net profits to environmental or social causes to support individuals and groups who are working to improve the environment and help the planet.

This year, Tern is instead giving a number of non-profit organisations its GSD cargo bike, a heavy-duty model that can carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries or 180 kg of cargo.

Equipped with Tern’s folding technology and 180 cm in length, the GSD packs down to one third of its size in just 10 seconds, and can be adjusted to fit riders from 150 cm to 195 cm. It is equipped with Bosch’s latest Dual-Battery technology, enabling you to connect up to two batteries for a range of over 250km.

The GSD is one of the bikes used in Tern’s #BikesforBusiness programme recently launched by the brand; in one initiative, it announced a partnership with Overseas Adventure Travel to deliver a new e-bike experience on OAT’s cruise ships.

To apply for a GSD, organisations must submit an online form and explain why they need one and how the bike would improve their daily operations.

Submissions will be accepted until 5th June, 7:00 am UTC+1. Applications will then be considered and the five chosen winners announced in August. The giveaway is open to non-profit organisations in countries where the GSD is currently sold.
