Big Bike Revival

Helping you keep cycling through the pandemic
As the UK battles the ongoing threat of coronavirus, cycling has proven to be vital for many, particularly key workers. It’s enabling everyone to get to work safely whilst maintaining social distancing. That's why Big Bike Revival is helping people keep cycling.
What is the Big Bike Revival?

At Cycling UK we want to keep you cycling – or get you cycling if you don’t have access to a working bike.

Many are using pedal power to commute or deliver essential items during the pandemic.

Going out for a ride is also helping people to look after their mental and physical health.

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, including services to key workers which are free at the point of access.

From bike safety checks and repairs to bike loans – this scheme will ensure that everyone can get from A to B on two wheels.

*Services available include:
  • Bike safety checks
  • Bike servicing and repairs
  • Bike and equipment loans
  • Dr Bike sessions
  • Some free equipment and accessories
  • Support and advice
  • *Free at the point of access

In Scotland, the Scottish Government is supporting us to provide free repairs to key workers through the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers. Locations for both projects can be found on the map.


The project is funded by the Department for Transport in England and Transport Scotland in Scotland.
