Welcome to BikeRight! West Midlands
Smart Network, Smarter Choices, is a project aimed at helping people travel in a more sustainable way across the West Midlands.
BikeRight! and Aecom are working in partnership with Centro and seven local authorities to provide free ‘Cycle Smarter’ activities to help you take up cycling, get back into cycling or give you the confidence to ride more often.
To qualify for these free activities you have to be over 16 and live, study, work or use a station in the vicinity of one of the Smart Network, Smart Choices corridors.
Individuals, companies, schools, colleges or universities can benefit so there really is something for everyone. If you would like to know if you are eligible for free Cycle Smarter activities then please get in touch.
