Coronavirus and Camden Try-A-Bike

Update of Thursday 2 April 2020

Our bicycle loans are now prioritised for key workers under Camden's COVID-19 response, and most of our bike fleet is currently out on loan.   

If you carry out essential work in the COVID-19 response, please state so in your enquiry.  

Support for NHS and essential workers’ travel is also available from other sources:   


  • Under current Government COVID-19 guidance many bike shops and online traders remain open and will prioritise sales and maintenance for key workers. Check with your cycle shop if you can buy a new bike or bring an old one back into use.
  • Dockless bike hire company Beryl is offering cycles for personal loan, free of charge, to key workers.
  • Bike retailer Fully Charged is offering eBikes on three months free loan to NHS workers.
  • Folding bike manufacturer Brompton offer free trials for NHS staff.
  • Transport for London is issuing codes to NHS offering free Santander Cycle Hire for journeys under 30 minutes, with docking stations near hospitals are given priority.
