The Bike Project

Description:

Our mission is simple: to get refugees cycling! We are a community of refugees, mechanics and volunteers. We receive donations of second- hand bikes, fix them together at our workshop, and then donate them to asylum seeking refugees. By attending our workshop and helping to fix their own bike, all beneficiaries get actively involved in the process as much as possible. This enables them to learn basic bike maintenance and form long-term supportive relationships. We also run a separate project where we teach refugee women to cycle. We teach cycling proficiency, in an all-female environment, to complete beginners. The lessons run once a week, for ten weeks, and all participants are given a bike at the end. To refer, please get in touch. We are a young project that welcomes anyone keen to volunteer, gain new skills and meet new people.
