Thinking of trying the Cycle Loan Scheme in 2019?

Do you want to try a bike before you buy? Here’s what one user of the Cycle Loan Scheme, Dave from Norwich, has to say about his experience:

I’d had a tough year really. I found myself in a situation where I couldn’t drive for a period of time due to illness. Someone I know recommended the cycle loan scheme, so I applied and found it was really easy to get a bike.

I went over to collect my bike and just had to hand over £10 deposit, which I got back when I returned the bike.

I started using it to get to work and travel around the city. Before I’d used it, I thought it was too far so wouldn’t have really considered it. But once I got used to it, I found it was something I could do comfortably.

It has made a big impact on my life in the way I get around. Before I would have driven even short distances, now I often leave the car at home, having seen from the cycle loan scheme that these distances are manageable.

I’d recommend the scheme to anyone, it’s a great way to see if you can do it, without making any sort of financial commitment.

If you live in the Greater Norwich area or Great Yarmouth, you can apply. Visit Cycle Loan Scheme to find out more and to register.
