Free Cycling Resources, Offers & Services

Many families are using their exercise time outside to take family bike rides around their local area. Cycling is very good way of getting some sun, fresh air and exercise. Sustrans have developed a number of free resources with links to offers and services related to cycling, and tips on how to maintain and service your bicycles that children, parents, staff and Key Workers may find useful during this lock-down period.


Sustrans' new scheme for Key Workers - #Cycle4KeyWorkers

With support from the cycling industry, Sustrans have created an interactive map that shows cycling related offers and services available to key workers in their local area, including:

·         Offers on cycles and equipment

·         Free and discounted repair and maintenance services

·         Free and discounted bike sharing schemes

·         Bike stores that remain open during the crisis

Three bike stores are supporting key workers in Harlow (check the map for details). The map will be updated daily. More info at:
