Having partnerships with other people who want to promote cycling is an essential part of our work.
Pedal Ready works with the following organisations and local authorities:
Sheffield City Council
We are contracted by Sheffield City Council to provide Bikeability training to school students throughout the city, and to help residents and workers of Sheffield get into cycling through our adult training schemes.
Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council
Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council fund us to deliver Bikeability training to school students across Rotherham.
We assist Sustrans with their Bike It project across Sheffield and Rotherham.
The Peak District National Park Authority and Sustainable Bakewell
The Peak District National Park Authority and Sustainable Bakewell have worked with us to enable more ‘Everyday Cycling’ in the Peak District.
In partnership with CTC (the Cyclists’ Touring Club) Sheffield Cycle Champion Steve Marsden we started Cycle for Health and Learn to Ride sessions across Sheffield and these still run with his continued support.
CTC – Sheffield & District
Many of our trainers are members of the CTC and we work with Sheffield and District CTC http://www.sheffieldctc.org/ to try and increase their membership and support their programme of family rides.
Part of the Heeley Development Trust, ReCycle Bikes offer Dr Bike services and cycle maintenance classes as well as a range of servicing and repair services including taking unwanted bikes and bringing them back to life with bikes available to buy on their website www.recyclebikes.co.uk.
We work with Get Cycling, delivering training to Sheffield employees taking part in their Bikeboost bike loan scheme.
We provide monthly Dr Bike services for Sheffield NHS at the Northern General and Hallamshire hospitals.
Pedal Ready grew out of Cycle Sheffield or Pedal Pushers as it was then. We continue to work with them to improve facilities for Sheffield Cyclists. Go to www.cyclesheffield.org.uk for more information about their work.
