Register Your Interest

We knew when we launched the Hope Academy that there was a demand for a rental scheme for top quality kids bikes. What we didn’t know is how popular our idea would be.

Unfortunately this has meant the scheme is oversubscribed many times over and as a result we have taken the difficult decision that for the time being we cannot accept any new registrations.

If you have already registered your interest via the webpage or emailed details to the Academy on the published email address you will be contacted in the next few weeks to update you as to when we will be able to supply your bike.

Please be assured that we are actively working on sourcing more frames and intend to open up the scheme again once we have sufficient frames to satisfy demand. We really want to make as many quality bikes available for children to ride and enjoy as possible. We will put any updates on this website and our social media.
