Free bike, if you need one

Birmingham City Council is again giving FREE orange-coloured Raleigh bikes to people who need them to get around.

Big Birmingham Bikes aims to encourage cycling by giving free bikes with priority given to families who will cycle together, or to apprentices or refugees. Cyclists will be asked to enter a partnership to increase their cycling every week. If you know of an orange bike not being used, then do report it.

Birmingham has only about 1% of people cycling to work at present which makes it one of the lowest levels of any city in Britain. Most car journeys are quite short and we have some of the highest bus fares in the country –  so more cycling is definitely possible. Safe cycling lessons are on offer.

Applications for a bike can be made on a form from a WellBeing Centre, such as that on Edward Road, or online here  Their email is here
