During the last lockdown, the Key Worker Cycle Loan scheme provided over 100 cycle loans to key workers!


This Autumn we are re-opening the Key Worker Cycle Loan Scheme to provide further support to our Key Workers during the lockdown period.

We are partnering with established cycle hire operators RouteFifty7 and Wight Cycle Hire to provide short term bike loans to facilitate active and healthy commuting for key workers. Successful applicants to the scheme will have a bike, helmet, lock, and lights delivered to their home address by their nearest participating cycle hire operator.

  • Bikes can be loaned for a maximum loan period of one month per participant. It is deemed that this is long enough to experience cycling to work and decide whether cycling is a suitable mode for the participant.

  • All bike loans are subject to availability.

  • A helmet, lock and lights are included as well as delivery.

  • By participating in the scheme, the participant agrees to take part in a future evaluation and monitoring survey

  • By participating in the scheme, the participant also agrees to the Terms and Conditions of our bike hire operators.

  • To apply for a Key Worker Cycle Loan please fill in our application form below.
