Big Bike Revival
The programme follows the Fix-Learn-Ride model, supporting new and returning cyclists to choose the bike for utility and leisure cycling through teaching skills, fixing bikes and delivering led rides.
As the country responds to the coronavirus crisis, Cycling UK has committed to extending this scheme via Dr Bike sessions delivered by mechanics in local communities for everyone, and at workplaces over the summer and into winter 2020.
These sessions are available nationwide and anybody can access the upcoming events - including children - to help build on the cycling habits of the next generation. We will also be running Dr Bike sessions in schools for the first time, enabling young people to get their bikes fixed up so that they can participate in confidence-boosting Bikeability training.
The Big Bike Revival scheme provides funding and support, so that independent bike shops, bicycle recycling organisations and not-for-profit cycling groups can offer assistance to those who need it.
From bike safety checks and repairs to bike loans – this scheme will ensure that everyone can get from A to B on two wheels.
