Leaving her little coastal town near Barcelona nearly 20 years ago, London is what Maria calls home. After a long stint in the food industry, she trained as a Cycling Instructor and has been teaching children, adults and anyone who cared to listen for the last 8 years.

She qualified as a mechanic whilst instructing, and 3 years ago started doing the odd week at the Project’s workshop.  She’s been part of the family since the start of Summer 2020, and could not be happier!
