If you have an old bike gathering dust at home, you can apply for a £50 voucher from the government to get it repaired.

The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme allows members of the public to receive a voucher worth up to £50 towards the cost of repairing a bicycle.

The scheme is open to anyone in England who has an unused cycle in need of a repair.

Vouchers can only be used with bike repairers or mechanics that are registered for the scheme in England, and up to two vouchers can be claimed per household.

A full list of terms and conditions and eligibility criteria is provided when you register.

How the scheme works

1. Find a Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme-registered bike mechanic to repair your bike using Energy Saving Trust’s map of participating bike shops and mechanics.

2. Apply for a £50 voucher on the Energy Saving Trust website when vouchers become available.

3. Book your bike in to your chosen repairer to be fixed (please call before bringing your bike in), using the voucher to cover up to £50 of the total cost of the repairs needed.

4. Enjoy cycling again.

The Fix your Bike Voucher Scheme has been set up to encourage more people to embrace cycling, boost the number of commuting and leisure trips, and 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.
