Give cycling a try

Change your habit

Give cycling a go for 8 weeks!

Why not give cycling a try for eight weeks, for FREE?

Maybe you would like to take the kids to school by bike, cycle to work or just ride for fun.  If you are looking to improve your fitness, save money, or just because you've always thought about giving cycling a go; trying cycling has never been easier.

You will need to visit Gloucestershire Bike Project (GBP)located at Barton Street, Gloucester to choose your bike and complete the loan agreement.  Bike sizings happen fortnightly on Wednesdays between 5pm - 8pm.  Upon collection of your tailored bike, a refundable deposit of £100 will be required and GBP will provide you with everything you need at no additional cost.

These include:

  • Lights
  • Helmet
  • Lock

The bike is then yours to use as often as you want for up to eight weeks.  If you decide to buy the bike during or after the loan period, it can be offered at a discounted price.

If you are unsure about cycling and require training please speak to GBP when you sign up and you can attend FREE cycle confidence training sessions.

So if you are over 18 years old and live/work in Gloucestershire, why not give the scheme a try? To register your interest please email or

Or try calling GBP on 01452 690979
