Welcome to the Homepage for the FREE Big Birmingham Bike Giveaway

.......along with a host of other FREE exciting cycling opportunities!

As part of Birmingham City Council’s £24.3 million Birmingham Cycle Revolution, Big Birmingham Bikes is a ground-breaking initiative aiming to encourage people of all backgrounds to get cycling regularly. We recently announced that Raleigh bikes has been awarded the contract to provide 5,000 Big Birmingham Bikes that will help encourage more cycling in the city. To take a look at the launch video, please follow this link http://birminghamnewsroom.com/2014/12/5000-bike-contract-awarded-to-raleigh/

Never before seen on this scale in the UK, the scheme will bring 5000 free-to-use bikes to the residents of Birmingham. Some will be given away to those from the most deprived areas, but don’t worry if you don’t qualify at this stage, we still have lots of activities that you can take advantage of.

Activities will take place in our new Cycling Centres for all residents no matter where in the city you live, enabling you to take advantage of guided rides, cycle training including learn to ride and cycle maintenance from one of these Centres.

To successfully engage with your community we need your help.

There are many ways you can assist no matter how much time you can offer, including ride leading, cycle teaching and promotion and awareness in your local community.
