Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme extended

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Theworkshop survey 2008 Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme works with bike shops across the country to provide free bike repair and maintenance to those who need it most right now.

The scheme is principally the same as the previous time it was launched, whereby members of the public can contact a bike repair organisation, ask for a repair under the scheme and then access up to £50 of maintenance/repair work which will be covered by the scheme.

For non-standard cycles (e.g. trikes, tandems, recumbents, cargo bikes. Excluding standard upright e-bikes) customers can access up to £100 of maintenance/repair work.

The scheme is part of the Scottish Government's response to the coronavirus pandemic and the need to provide more options to the public for travel and transport. A total of 20,000 repairs will be available across Scotland. The scheme is funded by the Scottish Government and is administered by Cycling UK.

You can apply for £2,000 initially, unless advised otherwise by Cycling UK. Further grant applications will be at the discretion of Cycling UK. 

Each bike shop will have their own operating procedures and can offer the scheme until 28 February 2023, however they may stop running the scheme before then.
