We have never been prouder or more grateful to key workers in our cities. In the face of a massive public health crisis their collective efforts have been truly heroic. The Bike Station and all our partner organisations want to do our part in helping our heroes to get to work and safely home again.
Our Hero Bikes scheme is providing FREE bikes to Perth and Edinburgh key workers in need, along with lights, locks and helmets so they can cycle safely. Providing free bikes means workers will have access to safe and affordable independent transport and just as importantly, a means to look after their health and well being.
We know bikes can change lives.
Erin Tindal, a care home worker in Perth who received our very first Hero Bike was surprised at how much cycling improved her day saying:
“It was mostly out of necessity really that I wanted to cycle. I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I did. It’s amazing. I’ve been cycling in all weathers as well which has been fab.”
Your support will help us provide as many key workers as possible with free bikes along with essential additional components of helmets, lights and locks.
You can help at any level.
Your funds will enable a key worker to receive the following:
£5 – local map
£10 – bike lights
£20 – sturdy lock
£50 – helmet
£150 – road ready bike
£200 – bike and accessories
£250 – bike, accessories and service
If you are a company or organisation in a position to support by donating road ready bikes or cycling accessories please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
