NHS Bike Loans
Bike Loans for frontline emergency staff
Big Birmingham Bikes and the Big Bike Project loan bikes for community led rides, teaching people to cycle and for short term day loans to improve people’s mental and physical wellbeing.
In light of the current situation with public transport being reduced and the need for key workers to get to work safely, we have loaned our fleet of bikes to those people working on the frontline emergency services and whose work is critical to the Covid-19 situation.
We are no longer accepting applications for the bike loans for emergency frontline workers scheme as it has reached capacity. We have contacted those who have already applied for the scheme to arrange their bike loan.
