Please spread the word and ask key workers to get in touch and book their slot. It’s on a first come first served basis so be quick!
The Big Bike Revival for Key Workers project has seen the national cycling charity ‘We are cycling UK’ work with partners throughout England/Scotland providing free maintenance checks and bike loans to enable frontline workers to keep riding through the crisis.
We are delighted to be supporting the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers and will be providing free bike services to help keep essential staff on the road.
The Hardie Cycle Hub reopened in April, following unprecedented demand during lockdown and have now recycled more than 100 bikes, which are helping people stay fit and active. We thought we could do more to help those who are helping others. We have implemented many measures to ensure the safety of staff and customers and welcome key workers to apply.
The Big Bike Revival has been running for five years and encourages people with barriers to cycling to learn new skills and rediscover cycling. Bike shops and recycling centres taking part in this year’s event have adjusted their offerings to support the key workers to ride through bike services and checks, bike loan schemes, pop-up Dr Bike sessions at hospitals and supermarkets and free equipment including locks and helmets and advice on keeping bikes safe and secure.
The Hardie Cycle Hub are honoured to be part of the scheme and have already had the pleasure of servicing bikes for key workers Veronique Kaise-Surry and Jacqueline Flint pictured below. .
