Get on Your Bike for £10 with Enfield Council

Published Monday, 14 September 2015

Are you thinking about taking up cycling, but don’t want to pay out for an expensive bike and equipment? Then Enfield Council’s Cycle Loan Scheme is for you!

For just £10 you can borrow a quality bike for one month. There are different styles to choose from such as commuter and leisure bikes plus folding and electric models. There is also a cargo trike available.

Included with your bike is a lock, helmet, high visibility vest and child seat if you would like one.

After the month you can either return the bike, or purchase it at reduced cost. You can’t lose.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said “The £10 cycle loan scheme is extremely popular and you can see why.

“We know that many people would like to give cycling a go, but just don't know where to start. They are equally concerned about the cost of bikes and associated equipment. This scheme gives you access to a quality bike, equipment and guidance, which is everything you need to start cycling, and all this for just a tenner.

“As part of the scheme we provide free cycle lessons enabling participants to learn road safety and gain other important cycling tips from an expert. Indeed, we offer free cycle training for everyone aged 10 years and over, not just those who borrow a bike. So why not sign up today?”

Enfield Council has made a short film to show you more about the scheme. Just go online, watch the film and then complete the application form and one of our friendly cycling champions will contact you to let you know when you can pick up your bike: Link
