Leamington man receive BBC Make a Difference Award

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Simon Storey, of The Bicycle Bus has been presented with the Green Award at the BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Make a Difference Awards.

BBc Award

Simon set up The Bicycle Bus in 2020 and it has helped many families take an active travel journey to school when they would have driven otherwise.

It now serves four local schools on two different routes.

Simon said: “In my acceptance speech I said that running The Bicycle Bus by itself wasn't going to save the world, but if I run The Bicycle Bus, while other groups pick up litter, and people reintroduce butterflies and others plant trees, together we can all make a difference.

"I also said how humbling and inspiring it was to meet so many people who do amazing things.

“I urged everyone to take something away from all the nominees and winners, go home and do something that will change somebody's life.”

Simon’s passion for cycling has led him to setting up the not for profit company Cycle Infinity CIC which provides paid for and grant funded services including The Bicycle Bus, learn to ride and improvement/confidence building sessions, Dr Bike maintenance workshops and more.
