Positive Cycles (a part of Positive Steps) has teamed up with Transport For Greater Manchester to assist in an initiative to supply transport for NHS staff and key workers across Oldham, Rochdale, Manchester and Tameside.

The aim is to collect donations of bicycles from the general public, refurbish them and then distribute to NHS staff and key workers during this current crisis.

Martin Sutton of Positive Cycles said: “Normally we take old and unused bikes and our volunteers and young people clean and fix them. We donate the newly refurbished bikes to jobseekers and local families.

During this coronavirus outbreak we are donating bikes free of charge to the NHS to help frontline staff commute safely to their place of work.   We have already donated over 20 bikes to local hospitals. So, check out your sheds and garages for those unused bikes and help us keep the NHS moving”.

Have you got an unused adult bike in repairable condition to donate to Positive Cycles? on 0161 621 9250 and they will collect your old cycle.
