You might have noticed that R-evolution have been busy as usual throughout lockdown - offering free services and fixes to our key working heroes, all with the kind support of Cycling UK and the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers. In fact, we're the only site in our area offering such an amazing scheme.
David Finn, a 34-year-old Children’s Intensive Care and Cardiology Doctor from Cottingham, has been inspired to get out on his bike with his family during the lockdown period and has benefitted from the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers scheme.
David’s 6-year-old daughter learned to ride her bike without stabilisers during the lockdown period and David was inspired to get his bike out of the garage and have it repaired so they could ride together.
David received a free service from R-evolution through the Big Bike Revival for Key Workers scheme and has been out and about in the fresh air with his family.
David said ‘It’s been a few years since I’ve ridden my bike. It was sat in the garage and needed some repair work to get it road worthy again. I have a demanding job and a young family so having my bike repaired at R-evolution has enabled us to do something together as a family. It has been great to spend time together doing something active in the fresh air.
I heard about R-evolution through a family member. I get limited time off work and the staff at R-evolution were able to prioritise the repair of my bike to get me back on the road as quickly as possible. We will definitely continue to get out on our bikes as a family now that we are up and running’.
John Marshall (CEO of R-evolution) said ‘The Big Bike Revival for Key Workers scheme has given us the opportunity to support key workers by keeping them on the road for commuting and leisure rides. We’ve found it to have additional benefit in getting key workers friends and family out on bike rides more often too’.
