About Access Bikes

Access Bikes aims to encourage people on low incomes to cycle for transport and leisure by removing the barrier of high upfront costs of a bike and equipment.

With funding from the Scottish Government, the programme offers capital grants to organisations to support the provision of cycles to people experiencing financial hardship in their community.

This funding is designed to support individuals who would not be able to afford to buy a bike themselves, enabling them to experience the benefits of cycling: saving money, helping the environment, giving them more transport choices and improving their health and wellbeing. 

We expect grant recipient organisations to already be working with significant numbers of individuals and communities hardest hit by the cost-of-living crisis to ensure that this funding has the biggest impact and reaches the people who need it most.
