There are no plans to provide a specific bike loan scheme for job seekers.

The Flexible Support Fund may be available for one-off purchases such as a bicycle to remove a barrier for claimants to get to work.

The Department for Transport leads on the Cycle to Work Scheme, which is available to employees, and was introduced to promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution.
