Short Term Bike Loan 4keyworkers in the Northwest

I am pleased to announce that I am relaunching my bike loan to keyworkers this week so if you work for the Western Trust, Public Health Agency and Derry City Council you can avail of this opportunity.

All bikes are provided with helmets and bike locks and are in perfect working order. The Leading The Way Project Bikes are loaned out to help you get active and to relieve some of the lockdown stress. There is nothing more enjoyable in my personal opinion that jumping on a bike and cycling along  our great greenway network. Hopefully, by trying before you buy, you will maybe consider travelling to work by bike and even doing a few active travel trips i.e. cycling to the shop.

Linda Doherty is a Nurse based at Altnagelvin Hospital and has previously enjoyed the benefit of a bike loan:

Linda Doherty said; "it has been a great opportunity for us to try out cycling before committing to investing in our own bikes. Being able to cycle to work has been really convenient for me and was great, the bikes came with a d-lock and helmet I had nothing to organise.”

 

To take out a bike on the short term bike loan you need to:

  • Email me kieran.coyle@sustrans.org.uk
  • I will email you back the loan agreement application form.
  • You must send proof of your work ID.
  • Proof of driving license with home address visible.
  • Send complete forms back with ID’s
  • I will then get in touch for you to come and bike up the bike.
  •  

Please note you will be asked to ride the bike so I can determine if you will be safe to ride the bike under our risk assessment and loan agreement.

If you don’t feel confident to ride a bike yet don’t worry, once lockdown is lifted I will be providing some confidence-building courses in very small groups under covid-19 guidelines.

For more information about the Leading The Way project bike loan for key workers and upcoming webinars and training course feel free to email me at Kieran.coyle@sustrans.org.uk
