We are excited to announce that ForwardMotion services are  gradually returning, although with a few differences. The team are sporting personal protection equipment (PPE) such as gloves and face-coverings and are keeping a safe distance from customers and service users. The team also carry hand sanitiser, but we do advise you to bring your own. If you’d like to find out what else our services are doing to keep you safe, email, or get in touch with us via social media.

  2. Cycle Hub Thurrock – Now open
    Our Cycle Mechanics and hub team have been busy working away on your refurbishments, repairs and upcycled bikes, and have now reopened to the public. In store, social distancing measures have been put in place and we recommend all visitors use their own gloves and face coverings. Operating hours may differ at a moment’s notice, so make sure you check out the Cycle Hubs’ Facebook page. Many of our bikes for sale are also available online, so make sure you also check availability on our Cycle Hubs Facebook shop before your visit.
  3. Bike Loan Scheme – Open to all
    Previously, the ForwardMotion Bike Loan Scheme was prioritised for key workers and those unable to work from home. Now, we are pleased to announce that the Bike Loan Scheme has been reopened to all. To hire a bike, or find out more information on the scheme, visit the ForwardMotion Bike Loan Scheme website or get in touch with us today.
  4. Personalised Travel Planning – Digital upgrade
    You can still order personalised travel plans for your regular journeys online, but now you can talk to one of our Travel Engagement Officers via videocall. Our officers will review your journey with you, identifying ways to be more active, contribute less CO2 to the environment and answer any other questions about your new routes. You can choose which method of video call is best for you when you fill in your personalised travel plan here on the ForwardMotion website.

    Our mobile hub has recently been cleared to appear at regular local events, such as public markets. These events will differ based on the organiser’s restrictions, but we hope to be back on the road to a town near you very soon. The hub will ensure to take extra precautions to adhere to hygiene and social distancing guidelines. Check our events page and social media pages to see the latest updates, and where you cant next find the hub.
