About the project

Making cycling accessible for all.

HERTS3CYCLE is a new and exciting community-based cycling project being piloted across Hertford and Ware in Hertfordshire. The project allows eligible residents to apply for a new FREE quality checked bicycle, the aim of making cycling accessible for everyone.

Team of qualified bike mechanics on standby.

Working with Highway Cycles in Hertford, you can be rest assured that all donated bikes have been serviced and quality checked.

How it works

Recycle, refurbish, redistribute.



Working with Hertfordshire County Council's waste management team, we collect unwanted bicycles from the local recycling centres. Alterneratively, we can receive a limited number of unwanted bikes from local residents (*subject to meeting certain requirements).



The bikes will be repaired across a number of our partner sites by qualified bike mechanics before returning to Highway Cycles Shop in Hertford to get a service.



Once the bikes have been fully checked over, a member of Hertford Cycle Hub's team will be in contact with the individuals on the waiting list to let them know we have a bike ready for them.

Do you qualify?

To apply for a free bike, each applicant must meet the conditions stated below:

• You must have an authorised adult over the age of 16 years old complete the application form.

• You must agree to cycle the bike regularly (once a week).

• You must agree to complete an initial and follow up survey via email or over the phone.

• You must live within one of the postcodes listed below.

We cannot guarantee that every eligible applicant will receive a free bike (we are reliant on matching a bicycle we’ve been given to applicants criteria e.g. height).
