Cycling, walking and public transport




If you don't have a bike there are some sources to help you


  • Cycle Scheme is a way to work with your employer: "an employee benefit that saves you 25-39% on a bike and accessories (or even more with our offers). You pay nothing upfront and the payments are taken tax efficiently from your salary by your employer."

  • Some cities provide some bikes for free. The Big Birmingham Bike scheme is now closed but ask your local council if they have a similar plan.


You can also campaign for greener transport options
