Bedford Council Donates 100 Marked Bikes To NHS Workers

Over 100 free bikes that have been marked and registered on BikeRegister have been given to NHS key workers in Bedford.

The bikes were handed over through Bedford Borough Council and donated from different sources including Govia Thameslink and Bedfordshire Police.

Several were also donated through ‘Give your bike a new life’ events, where the Bedford public donated their unused bikes.

Mechanics and volunteers from Sustrans and Bedford Park Rotary Club worked hard to ensure the bikes were cleaned, repaired and made roadworthy. They were also marked and registered on BikeRegister, which will mean they can be traced back to the owner in the event any of the bikes are stolen and recovered.

Mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson said: “It was great to be at the donation of the 100th bike to Anu, a staff nurse at Bedford Hospital.

“A massive thank you must go to everyone who donated their unwanted bikes, and to all the individuals and organisations involved in getting them fixed up and out to key workers in our NHS.
