If you are looking to reduce your travel costs and the rising cost of petrol, cycling is a great way to help you save your pennies! And maintaining a bike annually costs 20 times less than maintaining and driving a car.
Here are some ways we can help you save some money by cycling…
The Cycle Derby App
The free new app has many clever features such as a route finder, real time weather updates, as well as checking how much cash you have saved each journey you make by bike!
You can park your bike securely and for free at Park Bikeworks, whether you are travelling into the city for work, for leisure or to do a spot of shopping, you can save money on parking and petrol costs.
Bike Back Derby
The scheme offers high quality refurbished bikes at a low cost price! If you want to cycle but the cost of a new bike is off putting then Bike Back Derby may be able to help you, they supply bikes to adults living in Derby.
Bike It offers free cycling advice and practical training to job-seekers, with the aim of helping them get back into employment by making travelling there easier, cheaper and more sustainable. Everybody taking part receives a customised action plan that will hopefully enable them to make positive changes to the way they get around and search for employment.
