Brompton Bike Hire hopes to expand its support for the NHS with the launch of a new initiative aiming to deliver over 1,000 newly-manufactured Brompton bikes to key staff.
The Wheels for Heroes campaign sees Brompton Bike Hire launch a crowdfunder and commit production costs equating to an investment of up to £100,000.
With public and corporate support, the bikes will be produced at below cost price and loaned straight to healthcare workers via the Brompton Bike Hire network for as long as lockdown restrictions are in place.
In recent weeks, Brompton Bike Hire had already worked closely with St Barts Hospital, providing free bike loans to their front line staff. But with over 500 NHS already registered and more to come, Brompton says it simply doesn’t have enough bikes available in its hire fleet.
