Big Bike Revival

Cycling UK continues to support the UK to cycle
This remains true during this difficult period with the ongoing threat of coronavirus Covid-19

Big Bike Revival

Helping key workers unlock the joy of cycling
As the UK battles the ongoing threat of coronavirus, cycling has proven to be vital for many key workers. It’s enabling them to get to work safely whilst maintaining social distancing. That's why Big Bike Revival is helping key workers keep cycling.
What is the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers?

At Cycling UK we want to do our bit to help keep key workers pedalling – or getting them cycling if they don’t have access to a working bike.

Going out for a ride is also helping people to look after their mental and physical health.

The Big Bike Revival for Key Workers scheme provides funding and support so that independent bike shops, recycling centres and bike mechanics can offer free services to key workers.

The Big Bike Revival is all about overcoming those little barriers and to help you feel more confident about cycling.

From bike safety checks and repairs to bike loans – this scheme will ensure that our key workers can get from A to B on two wheels.

We aim to reach thousands of key workers in England and Scotland with free cycling services in spring and summer 2020.

For more information or to apply, please navigate to the England page or Scotland page.

Free services available:
  • Bike safety checks
  • Bike servicing and repairs
  • Bike and equipment loans
  • Dr Bike sessions
  • Free equipment
  • Support and advice


The project is funded by the Department for Transport in England and Transport Scotland in Scotland.
