A new scheme from the Energy Saving Trust and the Department for Transport launches at 11:45 p.m. this evening. Households will be eligible to receive up to two £50 vouchers per household for bike repairs at participating retailers (inc. Halfords). The repairs should be "necessary to make cycles roadworthy and fit for purpose" including:
repairing or replacing tyres, tubes, wheels and related components
adjusting, repairing or replacing the braking system components
adjusting, repairing or replacing transmission system components
repairing or replacing other essential components which prevent safe use of the cycle e.g. deteriorated grips or saddle
repairing or replacement of components for permanently fitted lighting systems
There are only 50,000 vouchers available and it is anticipated that demand will be great for this so don't delay in applying for these vouchers.
The vouchers must be used within 60 days of receipt.
