LEARN A POST LOCKDOWN SKILL AND SUPPORT REFUGEES AT THE SAME TIME
Birmingham’s Bike Project is helping people to get set up on two wheels and stay on the road safely whilst supporting refugees and asylum seekers living in Birmingham at the same time. The start of lockdown saw more people buying bikes than ever before. With the extra £2 billion cycle and walking package, and a national cycling plan to be unveiled next month, this trend is set to continue. But only a fraction of us know how to properly fix our bikes. To support refugees and asylum seekers and to help the rest of us with our post lockdown skills, The Bike Project is offering virtual one on one Dr Bike sessions with pro mechanics and sells perfectly refurbished second-hand bikes.
During the online session, people will receive help from an expert and learn new essential skills. The cost of each session and the sale of every bike goes straight back to helping refugees and asylum seekers who desperately need two wheels.
