After a significant increase in people cycling and walking during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Government want people to continue doing so. In July they launched the 'Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme', designed to help people get their unused bikes fixed, so that more people are cycling, rather than driving or using public transport.
What Is The Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme?
In 1999, the Government launched the ‘Cycle to Work Scheme’ that promoted a healthier and more environmentally friendly journey to work by allowing employees to get any bike, from mountain bikes to road bikes, and bike accessories. Now, the UK Government have introduced the ‘Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme’, which aims to encourage more people in England to embrace cycling as an alternative to driving. The scheme discourages the spread of COVID-19 by relieving pressure on public transport, whilst also helping people become fitter and healthier and reducing air pollution.
The ‘Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme’, which is for anyone who has a bike in need of a repair, provides £50 towards the cost of service and repair for up to two cycles per household. All you have to do is sign up for the scheme here, then use Energy Saving Trust's map of participating cycle shops and mechanics to find your local bike repairer.
