Each bicycle will receive a detailed feedback form, informing the owner what work has been carried out and what additional work is required. You will also have the chance to test out cargo and electric bikes which are available to borrow through Bike for Good and learn more about their Curious Commuter program which can support you in finding a safe and efficient route from your home to your workplace.
