Vivacity Culture and Leisure is working in partnership with Peterborough City Council’s Travelchoice team with funding from the Department for Transport to provide a refurbished bicycle scheme.
Based on successful and popular national projects in Cambridge and Newcastle upon Tyne, the Peterborough Refurbished Bicycle Scheme aims to repair old bicycles and give them back to the community.
The scheme, open to both adults and children, is funded by the Department of Transport, and allows applicants to obtain a free refurbished / second hand bicycle with a wide range of extras.
In addition to gaining a bicycle, free accessories are provided as well, including a helmet, lights, a lock and repair kit, and a cycle map of Peterborough, perfect for those who need sustainable transport to get around the city.
Free training classes are also be given, including bicycle maintenance classes provided by established local company Green Wheel Cycles, as well as cycle training courses, which are compulsory for under 18s.
The Refurbished Bicycle Scheme is available to any family household earning under £20,000, any individual household earning under £12,000, or any unemployed individual who is actively seeking work.
