The Bike Project

Type of service

We give bikes to asylum seekers and refugees, run a befriending cycling programme, and teach cycling to refugee women

Organisation description

Our mission is simple: get refugees cycling! At The Bike Project, we take second-hand bikes, fix them up and donate them to refugees and asylum seekers in London and Birmingham. The UK is bursting with opportunities – but it’s also expensive. Especially when you’re a refugee trying to navigate the complex asylum process on just £37.75 a week. At The Bike Project, we believe that no one should have to choose between eating a square meal and catching the bus. That’s why we do bikes. For a refugee without the money for public transport, a bike can make all the difference: a free and sustainable way to access education, lawyers, healthcare and psychological support.
