Bicycles for Wirral's Keyworkers

Magenta Living is sponsoring free bicycles for Keyworkers in Wirral who are Magenta Living tenants. This scheme is intended to help Keyworkers commute to where they are needed most, though of course, you're free to use the bike to help keep fit and healthy. We've teamed up with HYPE Urban Bikes who will provide the bikes and also support with any repairs needed during the three-month bike loan.

I have a Magenta Living sponsored bike that needs a repair

HYPE Urban Bikes are operating a 24 hour managed repair service. Please contact HYPE via emailing recycle@hype-merseyside.co.uk and you should receive a repair window within 24 hours of making contact. In some cases, we may be able to replace the bike so you're not prevented from getting where you need to be.


Insurance 

Unfortunately, incidents do occur both on and off the bike. So for peace of mind, and to protect both you and your cycling possessions, you may want to consider insurance. Cycling UK membership offers a variety of insurance and they are also offering a free 3 month membership to any health and social care workers, to find out more about this, visit: Cycling UK FREE 3 Month Membership for Keyworker
