Key Worker Support


If you are a key worker looking to cycle, then we want to support you.

Cycling has many benefits, it keeps you active, gets you fit and is good for mental health. It's also a great way to make essential trips whilst avoiding close contact with others.

Our team of Cycle Confident experts are on hand to offer support to key workers who want to start or continue to cycle during this time of crisis. Practical advice on cycle commuting and bicycle maintenance is just an email away. Just let us know what you need support with along with your contact details and we'll put you in touch with one of our cycling experts - whilst they can't help face-to-face they'll be able to do so virtually.

If you live, work or study in Enfield and you are a key worker then we can offer you a free Fix and Ride service - where we check over your bike and take you for a test ride. To find out more and book, click here.
