2015 Finalists for Best Integrated Community Hub

Birmingham Big Bikes - Birmingham City Council

The Big Birmingham Bikes programme is a 5 year programme that commenced in November 2013 with clear objectives to improve the levels of cycling within Birmingham with a particular focus on the most deprived areas of the City.  The programme has been established to deliver access to 4000 new bicycles, cycle training, guided rides and bicycle maintenance training focusing on Birmingham’s hard-to-reach communities, inspiring positive behaviour change through the medium of cycling. In addition, twenty cycling hubs have been established throughout the city, with support from the network of Wellbeing Centres, parks, Friends of Parks groups and community groups to encourage more people to cycle and give new/lapsed cyclists the opportunity to ‘have a go’.

Such facilities include two-tier bike storage for maximum occupancy, public bike repair stands and pumps, CCTV, security lighting and access control system.
