Explore By Bike

We are delighted to have provided an Enterprise Small Grant to Bodmin-based ‘Explore By Bike’ that has  enabled the growth of a business in the centre of the town.

Martin Jackson, who ran a small cycle maintenance business, saw a gap in the market for bike hire following Bodmin’s development as a cycle friendly town with reduced speed roads, cycle crossings and great links to bike routes such as the Camel Trail, Cardinham Woods, Lanhydrock and the national cycle network. ‘Explore By Bike’ has now placed the town firmly on the map as a well-deserved set-off point and we’re pleased to be part of this!

A grant of £8829.98, towards a total project cost of £12263.86, has helped Martin to invest in 21 new bikes, including a child tag-along so that exploring the Camel Trail can be an adventure for the whole family. He was also able to purchase a bespoke shipping container which doubles as secure bike storage and an impressive ‘shop window’ in the towns Priory car park.

We’ve very much enjoyed supporting Martin to secure his successful application as his drive and passion are truly infectious and we wish him luck with the future.
