-commuting to work

-No access to a car for commute

-on a low income (earning below the real living wage, on a zero hour contract etc)

Priority given to keyworkers on a low income.

 If you meet this criteria then simply follow the link to give us some brief details.  This will enable us to send you a personalised travel plan and refer you for your bike

 There are a couple of things to keep in mind - when you're completing the survey. The ‘Start’ and ‘end’ postcodes refer to the start and end of your commute so we can provide you with a free cycle route plan for your journey.

Lastly, don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter so we can keep you up to date on further support available. A member of the team will be in touch to confirm eligibility, discuss arrangements for your free bike and any travel support you need once we receive your response to the survey.
