Try Before you Bike Loan Scheme.
Are you thinking about taking up cycling? Whether it's for fun, fitness or you just want an easy way to get around. If you are over 18 years and you live, work or study in Lambeth, then finding out has never been easier.
For only £10 you can borrow a quality bike for 4 weeks. We provide everything you might need including lock, lights, helmet and Hi-viz.
At the start of the loan period you will be required to attend an induction session at which you will be given a demonstration on how to use the bike and accessories, be properly set up on the bike and be offered advice on how to look after the bike. During the loan you will be expected to complete a weekly online survey about how you have used the bike, but other than that the bike is yours to use as you want. And if, at the end of the 4 weeks, you want to buy your bike, then we can offer some great discounts.
There will also be cycle confidence trainers on hand to offer immediate help and advice, along with cycle maps, information and route planning advice. You can also take advantage of free cycle confidence building sessions whilst you have your bike.
Induction sessions are run every Tuesday fortnight and alternate between venues close to Oval Tube Station and West Norwood Train Station. You will able to arrive anytime between 3pm and 8pm and it will take approximately 30 minutes to collect a bike.
