"We are Bristol's most comprehensive Community Bike Project, repairing and relocating unwanted bicycles. We aim to help people from all walks of life get out on two wheels and for it to be an inclusive and empowering experience in the process.
Through our weekly workshops, we provide 'free' bicycles to members of underprivileged and marginalised groups that would not otherwise have the opportunity to own one. The Project combines a surplus of unwanted bikes (most of which are otherwise destined for landfill), volunteers of all abilities who are able to develop their mechanical skills within a supportive and safe environment and marginalized people within our community in need of affordable and sustainable transportation.
We are a welcoming and inclusive community-based Project, encouraging skill-sharing, promoting sustainability and helping people help themselves."
