To ask Her Majesty's Government how many 'Fix Your Bike vouchers' were distributed (1) in total, and (2) in each region, in the four releases; and what is the total cost of the scheme to date.

The Department has now released over 400,000 Fix Your Bike vouchers, as well as fixing many more bikes via the Dr Bike pop-up maintenance stations which it funded. This is consistent with the Secretary of State’s commitment that the Government would help fix up to half a million bikes.

The regional distribution of vouchers is as set out in the table below. In a small number of cases, an invalid or unmatched postcode was given when registering, meaning that vouchers cannot be assigned to a region. There are also some vouchers waiting to be redeemed by customers.

A total of just over £20 million was allocated to the Fix Your Bike voucher scheme and Dr Bike "pop-up" cycle maintenance initiatives in 2020/21. Over half of this has already been spent. The final total spend will depend on how many of the remaining vouchers are redeemed over the coming months.
