RideWise Emergency Bike Bank

RideWise have opened an Emergency Bike Bank to support essential workers in Nottingham(shire) during this crisis. RideWise is offering essential workers who are struggling to get to their homes, communities or workplaces a free bike to help them get around.  As a charity that have been a part of this community for over 15 years RideWise is committed to helping where they can because transport will become a major barrier for people without cars.  

People can email RideWise at customerservices@ridewise.org.uk and they'll match people with a suitable reconditioned + serviced bike to keep them moving (while our stocks last) - which will be increasingly important as public transport service reductions come into force across the City and County.

RideWise has also set up a JustGiving page to raise funds to provide free bikes for essential workers.  

A bike would be a lifeline for many people - like staff at the QMC who work shifts and are impacted by the timetable reductions.
