An introduction to Essex Pedal Power

Essex Pedal Power is a new and exciting community-based project being piloted in Clacton and Jaywick Sands, which allows eligible residents over the age of 12 to apply for a new FREE quality bicycle. The new inclusive programme aims to make cycling accessible for everyone providing access to employment, training and educational opportunities or key local services. The pilot scheme is the first of its kind to be rolled out in Essex and will distribute 1,300 bikes in phases throughout 2021-2023, and if successful will be rolled out to other areas of Essex.

Free training is offered to successful applicants who want to learn how to ride a bike, gain confidence in riding a bike, and understand basic bike maintenance.

The project will create new community cycling clubs with the aspiration to build new cycling facilities, which support the programme and provide more opportunities for residents to take part in cycling.

Essex Pedal Power is a partnership of Active Essex Local Delivery Pilot, Essex County Council, The Active Wellbeing Society, Tendring District Council, Sport England, Cycling UK and local stakeholders and community groups.
