Who knows what they will find and whether they will ever be reunited!

The Access Bike project aims to give everyone the chance to fall in love with cycling. We work with volunteers refurbishing donated bikes, and teach young people the skills to build and to earn their own bike! We look to remove any financial barriers to owning a bike. We also love getting crafty, making some really fun products from old bike materials, and sharing the skills to do it, with our local community.
