Allowing members of the public to receive a voucher worth up to £50 towards the cost of repairing a bike.
The vouchers can only be used with bike repair businesses that are registered for the scheme.
Registrations are now open for bike repair businesses that want to take part. Members of the public will be able to apply for the vouchers in the coming weeks.
UPDATE: The Government opened the application for vouchers in the last week of July, all vouchers were allocated very quickly. Further vouchers will be released at the Government’s discretion. For more info click here.
How the scheme works
We are a registered bike mechanic and able to fix your bike. Here is the process:
Redeeming your voucher
To redeem your Fix Your Bike Government Voucher, follow the steps below:
- Step 1 – Book your free bike assessment on this page and choose a time that suits you.
- Step 2 – Bring your bike, Government voucher** and approved form of identification. We’ll validate your Government voucher and undertake a free 32-point bike assessment, to identify any repairs or maintenance needed.
- Step 3 – Approve the repairs and apply your voucher. Our mechanics will talk you through the repairs required and how you can put your voucher towards the the cost of getting your bike back on the road. They’ll then order any parts required to fix your bike.
- Step 4 – Book a repair appointment at a time that is convenient for you. You can either leave your bike at our local store, or bring it back at the time of the your repair appointment with our bike mechanic.
- Step 5 – Collect your bike. We’ll call to inform you when your bike is ready for collection. You’ll be able to put your voucher towards the cost of the repair work, which will cover the first £50 of your repairs and you can simply pay the difference if your repairs cost more than £50.
* Redeemable value dependent upon work required.

The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme has been set up to encourage more people to embrace cycling, to boost the number of commuting and leisure trips, and to promote an alternative to public transport, while social distancing measures are in place.
It also aims to help reduce the number of short journeys made by private cars.
