Fix Your Bike Scheme
The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme has been set up to encourage more people to embrace cycling, boost the number of commuting and leisure trips, and promote an alternative to public transport, while social distancing measures are in place.
It also aims to help reduce the number of short journeys made by private cars.
As we understand it individuals apply for the voucher directly from the Government themselves, rather than via their GP; details of eligibility and how to apply can be found on the GOV.UK website here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/fix-your-bike-voucher-scheme-apply-for-a-voucher
How the scheme works
1. Find a Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme-registered bike mechanic to repair your bike using Energy Saving Trust’s map of participating bike shops and mechanics.
2. Apply for a £50 voucher on the Energy Saving Trust website when vouchers become available.
3. Bring your bike in to your chosen repairer to be fixed, using the voucher to cover up to £50 of the total cost of the repairs needed.
4. Enjoy cycling again
