Manchester kids to get bike allowance

Manchester City Council is to offer secondary schoolchildren cycle allowances as an alternative to free bus passes. The allowance, for children living beyond the three-mile home-to-school statutory walking distance, will be worth £180 over two years. The council is exploring paying it in the form of a voucher that can be redeemed at bike shops. It also plans to link payment to evidence that the child has completed a cycle training programme.
