Last chance for a £10 Cycle Loan – apply now!
Cycle Enfield will soon be closing its £10 Cycle Loan scheme so any resident who would like to take advantage of it needs to act now! The innovative scheme, which breaks down barriers to cycling by giving people the chance to try a bike for a month, has proved a great success with hundreds of residents such as Priscilla, who was featured in last week’s newsletter, encouraged to buy their own bike by their positive loan experience. The last available five months of statistics alone show 137 people taking advantage of the scheme – that works out an over one extra person every day potentially starting a healthier lifestyle!
We will continue to encourage access to cycles by other means. Over the past spring and summer we successfully tested pop-up bike markets as an alternative approach to help more people cycle and are planning more of these community events for next year. We are also looking at starting a dockless cycle hire scheme trial in 2018.
However, if you think the £10 Cycle Loan scheme is the best solution for you, there is still a last chance of taking up the offer as the last date to sign out a loan bike for a month will be Thursday 16 November 2017, with bikes returned on Thursday 14 December.
