Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme: apply for a voucher

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.

Applies to England

We continue to work closely with industry to monitor the scheme’s impact. Any updates on future releases of vouchers will be published on this page.

Repairer registration is now closed to new applications. If you are already participating in the scheme, visit the Fix Your Bike website and sign in to access your account.

Eligibility

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

However, as there are a limited number of vouchers available, please consider the needs of others before applying for a voucher and do not delay making planned repairs outside of the scheme should your circumstances allow it.

Vouchers can only be used with bike repairers or mechanics that are registered for the scheme in England.

Only one voucher can be claimed per customer.

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

How the scheme works

  1. Apply for a voucher of up to £50 on the Fix Your Bike website.
  2. Find a Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme-registered bike mechanic to repair your bike using the list of participating bike shops and mechanics.
  3. Take your bike and voucher code to your nominated bike repair business, and receive £50 off the cost of the repair. You should be able to book an appointment online or over the phone so you can avoid making unnecessary trips in person, but check this with your chosen repairer.
  4. Enjoy cycling again.

Background

The Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme was set up to encourage more people to embrace cycling as a means of travel during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and beyond. Cycling is an excellent way to travel while maintaining social distancing.

The scheme aims to help increase the number of short journeys made by bike rather than private cars. This shift will have huge benefits for:

  • the climate
  • public health and wellbeing
  • road congestion
  • air quality
