Outfit Moray's Bike Revolution project has done a fantastic job of getting people on their bikes during lockdown. When they reopened in May, they serviced 80 bikes (compared to their usual average of 30 per month) - 35 of which were for key workers, plus 20 walk-in repairs. On top of that, they sold 50+ bikes and completely wiped out their stock.
CEO Tony Brown commented "Despite the obvious challenges and uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, this uptake of cycling from the local community has been fantastic and something that we are keen to sustain."
We had no hesitation in providing further funding to to Outfit Moray to improve working conditions and energy efficiency in their Bike Revolution workshop - making the space more fit-for-purpose, creating a nicer experience for customers and, hopefully further increasing cycling in Moray.
