The Big Bike Revival is here!
We all remember those carefree childhood days with the breeze in our hair and the freedom to go wherever we wanted, whenever we wanted on our bike.
Few things in life are better than a cycle ride, whether it’s a trip to visit friends, a daily commute or a pedal to the countryside.
Whether you’re still a regular cyclist or you haven’t been on a bike for years, there are lots of ways for you to get out and about on two wheels.
What's the problem?
Adults in Britain appear to be aware of cycling and its potential for shorter journeys and a large proportion have bikes but are at present not making use of them.
- High volume of Cycle Ownership (42%)
- Low levels of cycle usage (63% not cycled in the past year)
- Propensity to use the car for short trips that could be made by cycle (37% of adults)
How do we fix this?
The Big Bike Revival is a social marketing programme providing an opportunity to:
- Carry out basic repairs e.g. fix a puncture
- Cycle safely on and off road
- Donate your old bikes
- Buy a recycled bike
- Get advice about local cycle routes, clubs or activities
