Spokes East Kent Cycle Campaign works to encourage all forms of cycling in East Kent and lobbies local, county, and national government to improve cycling safety and infrastructure. For details on how you can get involved see:

Sustrans works in a similar vein, nationwide. They have an excellent website with on-line mapping free to all.


Terms and Conditions:

It is understood that by using the services of Wheel Potential, the client has read these Terms and Conditions, and agrees to abide by them.
1. The client will pay a fixed annual fee for unlimited use of the cycles and keys to the containers.
2. Use of the cycles must be arranged through the on-line booking tool (details given upon membership).
3. As many involved members of staff as possible/appropriate must attend an initial induction session at the container with one of the Wheel Potential volunteers. No bookings can be made before this induction session has been complete. Staff members must then pass on the induction session information to staff colleagues who were not at the official session if necessary.
4. Safe-keeping of the container keys is the responsibility of the subscriber as is the locking of the containers. There will be a fee for replacing a lost key. The keys must not be “lent” to third parties. If the Directors decide, in the event of a lost key, that security of a container has been compromised, the organisation responsible will be charged for a replacement lock and keys set.
5. The space in the containers is limited and cycles must be returned to their allotted slots as taught in the induction session and as per the instructions and photos placed in the containers.
6. The cycles and all the contents of the containers must be treated with care and respect at all times.
7. On each visit, the organisation must fill in a Usage form and, if necessary, an Incident form.
8. Wheel Potential has insurance against theft and damage to the cycles and the policy includes compensation for serious injury or death of any rider. Public liability insurance (to cover damage caused by a rider to someone or something) is not provided by Wheel Potential and is the responsibility of the user.
9. When cycles have been taken away from the containers and are being left unattended – for example, while people sit inside the pub at Chartham – all of them must be chained through the frame to an immovable object with the locks provided by Wheel Potential. This is a requirement of the insurance policy.
