The Covid-19 pandemic and cost of living crisis exacerbated the need for bikes, with many worried they were unable to safely and affordably reach places of employment. It showed us that enabling people and communities to cycle was more important than ever. The benefits to cycling are not just physical - cycling and access to bikes is mentally, economically and socially transformative.


We partnered with HF Giving to spearhead this project by working with local community groups to reach those most in need. South West Railways allowed us access to bikes that had been abandoned at their train stations, and a London Walking and Cycling grant from Groundwork UK enabled us to turn our dream of upcycling abandoned bikes into reality.

This scheme has now come to an end and we are incredibly proud of the initiative and the positive impact it had on our local community and environment. Over the course of the two year project, we donated close to 100 bikes to local adults and children, and saved abandoned bikes from landfill to provide a sustainable and effective transport option to homes which would otherwise be disconnected from affordable travel.
