Imagine you couldn't afford a bike. I don't mean a tricked out carbon, full suss dream machine, I mean any bike at all. This is the reality for countless people in Bristol and across Britain. Unable to afford a bike or public transport, their only option is to walk miles, or stay at home. People who are unable to work, through no fault of their own, need transport in order to keep their lives moving. The Bristol Bike Project provides free bikes and free repairs for the poorest people in Bristol - but we NEED HELP!
We need volunteer bike mechanics to help us prepare and repair bikes for the Earn-a-Bike scheme. If you have any fixing experience at all, we would really appreciate your help at any of our volunteer sessions. You don't need to know everything. You may learn a lot, and you will probably find the experience rewarding and fun.

We also need bikes and parts, so why not clear out that shed!
