Cycles for key workers

Find the best offers for frontline staff on bikes, repairs and equipment

We want to help our frontline heroes cycle to and from work safely during the Covid-19 pandemic.

So we've created an interactive map to help key workers find bike offers and services in their area.

How to use the map

Our map shows cycle offers and discounts available to all key workers (including NHS staff) across the UK.

And it also shows all the bike shops that are staying open during the pandemic.

Browse the map, or use the search box to look up your postcode or area.
