The UK government has just released more Fix Your Bike vouchers worth £50 each.

The scheme was launched last summer in a bid to get more people cycling, instead of relying on other forms of transport, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

Registration begins today and is offering 150,000 vouchers, the largest amount since the scheme began.

The initiative is only for England but qualifying bike shops can go online to join the programme.

Cycle shops Halfords and Evans Cycles have already signed up, with both offering services to anyone with a voucher.

To claim yours, go to the Fix Your Bike website where a code will be sent to you and then find your local shop where you can redeem your voucher to get either parts or a service.

“We are pleased to see the Government has made more of its £50 bike repair vouchers available to help people to go online and get help to continue cycling. There has been great demand for this service,” said James Scott from Cycling UK told Cycling Weekly about the plan.
