"Amey LG were successful in winning a cycle grant early in 2015. Working in partnership with Gear Up, Amey were able to spend the money on 12 pool bikes for staff to use when commuting to and from work, and business use during the day. The money was also used to locate a secure storage container on site for the bikes, and all other associated equipment needed to successfully run a bike hub. Gear Up have facilitated a staff training day - to ensure Amey have a team of key staff able to maintain the bikes, they have held numerous Dr Bike sessions at the depot and their expertise has been invaluable in helping advise on the requirements to implement and manage a cycling hub that is utilised by Amey employees. Through the need to promote green travel, healthier choices for Amey employees and to support our local communities Amey wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gear Up’s services."

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
"The workshops enabled us to integrate our Central and Eastern European clients with others, which hadn’t always been possible in a classroom setting because of language barriers, so this was even more positive by providing a ‘hands on’ experience. All participants felt that taking part and seeing that they could reassemble bicycles improved their confidence and self-worth."

Always friendly and welcoming, there's never any job too big or too small at Gear Up. They have fixed my bike many times and the job is always done in very good time to a high standard no matter what state I've managed to get my bike into!
