  • A refugee or asylum seeker who has already received a bike from The Bike Project
  • A refugee or asylum seeker who is on our wait list to receive a bike
  • A participant of one of our programmes (Pedal Power, Bike Buddies, Social Action Heroes) or a volunteer with us

You must be 18 years old or older.

How do I sign up?

If you are in one of the groups above, please email us and ask to join Cyber Cyclists. Once you are added, you will receive daily invites by SMS/email.

Bicycle repairs

Help, my bike is broken!

If you have received a free bike from The Bike Project, we will also fix the bike for free in our workshop if required. Give us a call (02077 338 098) or email us to talk about what you need.

Where can I pump my tires?

Search ‘cycle shop’ on Google Maps to find one near you. Phone them to check that they are open, and ask if you can come in to borrow a bike pump. They would not usually charge you for this.

Other support

COVID-19 health information

Doctors of the World have put together some amazing resources about Coronavirus which they have translated into different languages most commonly spoken by refugees. You can access this information via their website.  During this time we know that people may feel more anxious than usual. Please contact us if you would like further information about support services that can help or just for a chat.
