How to get a bike

Translate this page:

Most of the bikes we give to refugees and people seeking asylum are distributed via the external organisations we work with.

If you’re currently being supported by one of these organisations, getting in touch with them directly is the quickest way to receive a bike.

However, if you’re eligible to receive a bike from us but not receiving support from one of our partners – we are open to a small number of applications per month in London and the West Midlands. These are extremelty limited, so you may need to come back to this page at the beginning of the month in order to apply.

See below for further details.
