Bicycles

Get fit and get there faster! Bicycles are best for shorter journeys to work or training, or when you can get a bus or train but it’s a bit far at the other end!

We can provide:

  • New pedal bikes up to an agreed price limit
  • Electric bikes (weekly loan charge payable)
  • Reconditioned pedal bikes

 

If you are able to meet us at a bike sale, it may be possible for you to take one of the reconditioned bicycles away on the day. 

Where this is not possible we can provide a voucher for £50 off a reconditioned bicycle available from the project we work with called Bike Back Derby, based at: Unit 3a, 1 Canal Street, Derby, DE1 2RJ. Tel: 07710632999. Opening Hours: 10-4 Mon-Wed

If you prefer to purchase a new bicycle, we pay up to £100 once you have completed the application and provided us with your proof of employment. The help we offer changes with our funding situation so always check what you can get from the scheme before making a purchase.

 

Some clients that have further to travel to work or have a more challenging cycle route prefer an electric bicycle.  This works on the basis of a repayment period of 6 months. Wheels to Work buys the Electric Bike and the rider pays £25 weekly via standing order for the duration of the 6 month period, after which it is theirs to keep. If you would like an electric bicycle please select this option on your application.
