The Access Bike Project
For the second round of lockdown, we will not be open to the public, so we've had to cancel our booked sessions and put a hold on bike sales.
But fortunately we are still able to run our 1-1 peer mentoring sessions. These help young, disadvantaged and/or vulnerable people to be part of an enriching community project, and has proved to do wonders to their confidence, independence, social skills and mental health, all through the medium of fixing bikes and up-cycling!
Getting young people on a bike
Who are we?
Founded in Stroud in 2015 the Access Bike project aims to give everyone the chance to fall in love with cycling. By refurbishing donated bikes for sale and allowing free access to the workshop we look to remove any financial barriers to owning a bike.
But beyond that we run mentoring sessions with disabled and vulnerable young adults; community events, develop micro businesses and much more!
‘’We have such an awesome mix of people of all ages, from all backgrounds joining us daily at the workshop; it has proven to really bring people together’’ - Alfie Stephens, Project Founder
