The UK’s new fix-your-cycle scheme has crashed within the first 10 minutes of use. Obviously a journalist’s dream….I’m just annoyed as I quite fancied fixing up an old bike for my partner.
At 1145 PM, Sarah Talbot tweeted that the site had crashed, saying “repeated attempts to get on it’s now coming up HTTP Error 404…very disappointing”
LINK: Here is the link https://fixyourbikevoucherscheme.est.org.uk/ for you to keep trying to get one of those elusive vouchers, obviously keeping the system down for longer when you press F5 like I’m doing right now 😉
How it works
- One voucher per person, two per household.
- Only redeemable at accredited bike stores but that includes Halfords, Evans and many more. My local bike shop accepts them too, Moore’s Cycles, but they are already booked up until the end of August before the scheme even starts!
- There is also a limited number of vouchers available in total.
- Typically it will be something like £35 for a service and the £15 to cover any extra bits that are required.
In Summary: A GREAT deal if you can get the voucher and if you can get it booked in.
Keep on pressing that F5 button.
While you’re pressing F5, try reading this bike computer review or, if you’re not in the market, there are some interesting Di2-related tidbits below that or a look at my newish bike – good reads if you love your gadgets 😉
