Cabinet member for transport and environment, councillor Bassam Mahfouz said:
"As the nights draw in and the weather changes, it's important for cyclists to be seen and warm. These vouchers will help residents stay on two wheels through the winter in what continues to be the best way to commute and travel."
Cyclists who have completed training since last November will be contacted by Cycle Training UK to apply for their vouchers. Vouchers will be posted out in the first week of November and will be valid for use until 31 January 2016.
