Free bike loan scheme aims to keep key workers moving

A scheme from Cycling Uk aims to keep key workers moving through lockdown.

A scheme from Cycling UK offers key workers across Scotland the chance to loan bikes for free during lockdown.

Cycle UK’s Big Bike Revival for Keyworkers project allows staff to borrow a bike or get free repairs to their existing one.

Transport Scotland found bike traffic has more than doubled since lockdown began with workers being advised to avoid public transport if possible.

There are currently 86 transport hubs across Scotland supporting the Big Bike Revival project.
