‘Wheels to Work’ scheme offers discount on bikes

LIFE Cycle’s Bike Back project at Horfield prison has linked up with Travel West’s ‘Wheels to Work’ scheme to offer those eligible £50 off the cost of a bike and with bikes starting from just £50, there really is something for everyone.

Wheels to Work aims to help those who are unemployed, recently employed, in training or earning less than the living wage by providing them with transport to travel to work, training or interviews.

Helping young people to overcome one of the biggest barriers to accessing employment and training can be transformative and getting a low cost bike can really help in securing a position.

If you are over 16 and think you may be eligible, you can go along to one of Life Cycle’s bike sales at Horfield Prison every Thursday from 10am until 3pm, open late until 7pm on the 1st Thursday of each month. Or see their website for other city wide sales.

Bike sales are open to everyone but proof of eligibility will be needed for the Wheels to Work discount.

For more information, please contact: Tamar Thompson, 07753 746804, tamar@lifecycleuk.org.uk .
