Installing E-bike charging points in public parks and open spaces

Electrically assisted E-bikes are known to make users more physically active. Many public parks a modest distance from population centres and within cities have car parking, but no facilities for securing and re-charging E-bikes. This is clearly a nonsense when we do not have road capacity for more cars, and when a number of E-bikes can be fitted into one car space, or secured in one place so that they can be provided with CCTV supervision. Assuming that people going to a park for exercise will want to drive there is also daft. A purchaser of an E-bike will want to try it out, and will be attracted to known re-charging points. We should provide secure charging points for E-bikes in public parks and open spaces, even when usage during working hours is low.
