Free long term loan bikes for young riders

TPR events are an award winning not-for-profit social enterprise passionately focussed on engaging, inspiring and enabling riders of all ages to get active, feel great and achieve more in life using cycling as our vehicle. From our early days of chart-topping cycle to school transformation projects, the Great Yarmouth Bike Project where we worked with local people to recycle and give away 1000 bikes over three years to running the regions biggest and most loved youth racing and coaching programme we have always loved seeing new riders fall in love with cycling and do our best to help them along their way. 

Several of our previous riders are making their living from cycling and gone on to ride professionally in the UK and Europe. Many more continue to ride and just love the freedom, energy and motivation that cycling brings to the rest of their daily life.  We get to say hello to many of you who come back and ride our sportives every year and just as importantly – we are yet to meet many more who will follow in these wheel tracks!

Local retailer Pedal Revolution feel the same and together we would love to offer another 6 young people aged approximately 8-12 years old the opportunity of a free bike loan to help them develop what we hope will be a life long passion for cycling. Pedal Revolution have serviced all the bikes and ensured they are ready for action, TPR Events will offer you free entry into the Tour de Broads and Pedal Norfolk and all we ask from you is to love your bike and enjoy cycling as much as we do! 

For over 10 years TPR Events have been inspiring and enabling riders of all ages and abilities to start riding, continue riding and challenge themselves to bigger and and more ambitious goals with their events programme including the Tour de Broads in August (8-100 mile routes), the unique Pedal Norfolk Cycling Festival at Holkham in July (6-150 mile routes all weekend) and the RSPB Minsmere off-road sportive in November. All our events are fully signposted with mechanical support on hand, fully inclusive of refreshment stops and rewarded with bespoke medals and souvenir photos.  Events are designed for riders on road, gravel, hybrid and mountain bikes and e-bikes and hand cycles, tandems and trikes are also seen being enthusiastically ridden!  

Bikes Available on 1st August 2024

How our loan scheme works

All we ask is that you keep your bike clean and tidy, perform the regular checks we will show you with your parents and take it to Pedal Revolution once a season for them to service it for free. We understand you are going to grow constantly so Pedal Revolution are on hand throughout your time with the bike to make sure it still fits you and you are safe and comfortable. When you have outgrown our bike, just return it to us so we can recycle it for another young person to love and treasure. 

Servicing, repairs and maintenance

We will always try to help you enjoy your cycling but while you have our bike we would expect you to treat it like your own. Pedal Revolution will provide professional servicing every season but we expect you to replace worn out parts, punctures etc. We totally expect a few scraps and dings along the way but please look after it and return it to us in usable condition. 

Come and try for size

Sizing for young riders is always difficult without our seeing the rider on the bike. Come and visit us at our Pedal Norfolk Cycling Festival weekend and try the bikes for size. We look forward to meeting you and helping your young rider on their cycling journey! While you are here why not ride our family adventure trail or join in the free children’s activities with Ridgeback Bikes ???
