Cycling Success - West Midlands Cycle Hire comes to Harborne

West Midlands Cycle Hire comes to Harborne, thanks to the support of Harborne Village Business Improvement District

I am so pleased that the West Midlands Cycle Hire has been extended to Harborne. We have campaigned hard for this to happen and it's fantastic to see the bikes already being well-used. I will continue to campaign for safe cycling routes to connect Harborne to the QE Hospital, the University and the rest of the City.

The West Midlands Cycle Hire scheme has proven successful in Birmingham and I’m delighted that Harborne has been chosen to take part in this trial so that local people can benefit.
As a director of Harborne BID, I am also really grateful to local businesses for supporting this initiative.
Having the scheme available will give people who live in Harborne the chance to get back on the bike after a long break, and get out for fun, fitness or to explore somewhere new. Through our Transport Plan, we are determined to see more people replace shorter car journeys with cycling and to see walking and cycling as the first choice for trips around their local neighbourhood.
