Essex Pedal Power, Colchester, will allow eligible residents in Greenstead over the age of 16 to apply for a new FREE quality bicycle, and the inclusive programme aims to make cycling accessible for everyone, providing access to employment, training and educational opportunities or key local services. The scheme will distribute over 700 bikes in phases throughout 2023-2025, with the aspiration of additional areas across Essex in the future.
