Charlie rarely sits still and is often on the move between all The Bike Project sites. Whether in the office, in the workshop or out delivering cycle training at our 3 Pedal Power locations, you can easily find her by following the trail left by her unrelenting ice cream soda and M&M habit.  
 
Charlie built up her first bike at university. After graduating she spent two years in Beijing where she revelled in being surrounded by millions of bikes and built a bike frame from bamboo!

After another year riding around Corsica, she came back to London and began volunteering at The Bike Project; eager to share the joys, freedom and exploration that a bike can open up to everyone, especially those in a new country.
