Cycling is a great way to reduce your carbon emissions, as well as helping to reduce congestion on Derby’s roads. We have a number of ways that can help you cycle more and help to reduce your carbon foot print!
Bike Back Derby
The scheme saves unwanted and unused bikes and restores them to a condition as good as new, rather than them going to a landfill! The refurbished bikes are then sold at low prices to adults in Derby. It’s a great way to get hold of a cheap, high quality bike, particularly if you are keen on recycling.
Cycling to town whether it is for work or leisure purposes is great to reduce not only congestion but also thinking about the environment. At Park Bikeworks you can safely secure your bike for free, as well as enjoying the other great facilities that the cycle hub has to offer, such as lockers and showers.
With the launch of Derby’s first cycle app, you can now track and plan routes, check real time weather, see how long journeys have taken as well as the amount of emissions saved for each time you use your bike for a route! The app is free to download and you can start to plan your cycle journeys straight away.
