Big Birmingham Bikes has now launched bike banks.
This exciting children’s bike loan scheme is available throughout the city. Again we are targeting the most deprived areas. We know how kids out-grow clothes and shoes quickly, and bikes are no different.
We are using recycled bikes that are reconditioned, and distributing them out of a network of Wellbeing Centres and Community Hubs.
It’s FREE to use, but we do ask users to commit to engage in cycle lessons, such as Bikeability, before they receive a bike. On receipt of the bike, users also commit to ongoing and regular use.
Loan bikes are available to those aged 15 and below.
FOR ENQUIRIES… Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘BIKE BANK’ in the subject title. Please include your postcode and the age/ages of your children.
Please note: There is a limit of two children’s bikes per household.
There is more information about Big Birmingham Bikes over on the Active Wellbeing Society website.
