New scheme in Somerset – Free cycle parking stands for businesses/organisations

We are Life Cycle UK, a charity that works in local communities to encourage and enable cycling by helping small businesses and community/charity organisations to promote sustainable travel.

Right now, we are offering free cycle stands to shops, community organisations, churches, charity venues and small businesses via our Take a Stand® scheme, funded by the HPC Community Fund & Somerset Community Foundation, to improve access by bike and encourage people to take up or return to active travel as well helping transport links around rural Somerset – especially at venues in the Hinkley Point C impacted areasof Somerset, of which we know your district is particularly involved.

Our offer includes free delivery AND installation of up to four sturdy ‘Sheffield stands’, meaning there is zero cost to the recipients – an essential factor in these difficult financial times.Our scheme will help organisations cater to the increased numbers of cyclists, whilst contributing towards cleaner air and healthier communities by encouraging more people to cycle.

Please share this offer with your networks and any local, small businesses or community groups in your constituencies who would benefit.

Who can apply?

The subsidy is open to small organisations who do not have a budget for cycle parking, for example:

  • Small, local businesses such as independent shops, offices, pubs, and dental surgeries.
  • Voluntary sector and community organisations such as charities, community halls, sports venues or places of worship.

(We can’t offer free stands to state-funded institutions such as schools or fire stations – or large businesses. For more information, full terms & conditions and to apply, click here. )

Please share this information and link with anyone you think could benefit.
