Do you want to cycle more but the cost of a new bike is holding you back?
Do you want to cycle more but don’t feel confident on your bike?
The bike offer is funded by Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). It aims to encourage more people to cycle instead of using a car for short journeys, in areas where air quality needs improving.
We are offering adults and their children who hold a valid Portsmouth Leisure Card a chance to purchase bikes at a heavily reduced price.
Successful applicants will receive a maximum of £120 towards a designated adult bike or £100 towards a designated children's bike from a selected cycle shop in the city. Each applicant will also receive front and rear lights, a hi-vis waistcoat and a helmet, to gear them up to cycle safely in Portsmouth. Use this link to apply Family Cycle Grant Scheme
You can also get FREE individual cycle training and cycle maintenance training with our cycle training providers Pedal Power and Motiv8.
Anyone can apply for cycle training. You do not need a Leisure Card.
This training covers:
• Journey planning
• Improving cycling skills and increasing your confidence on the road
• How to fix and maintain your bike
Applicants will be assessed on a first come, first served basis and the offer will run until all the funding has been used.
