What’s your thing? Ultra-marathons? Baking? Raffles? Endurance cycling? Quizzes?

Whatever your bright idea, we’ll get behind it – and you – so that together, we can get more refugees riding.

No ideas? No problem! We’re here for that, too. We love hatching perfectly formed plans with our amazing fundraisers so just get in touch.

Fundraising ideas

Our Fundraising A-Z has more ideas than you can shake a stick at. But here are some to whet your whistle:

  • Organise a quiz night, gig night or community bake sale.
  • Host a bake-off, a come dine with me dinner or wine and cheese tasting – food never fails!
  • Got a place in a cycling or running event? Then use it to fundraise for the Bike Project
  • Round up friends and commit to a group challenge over a month. 100 burpees a day, cycling to and from work or giving up the morning coffee.
  • Part of a faith group, school or other community group? Organise a collection. Collect cash or do a virtual version by setting up a fundraising page for your group.

Part of a school, student society or community group that wants to get refugees riding?


We’d love to talk to you. Get in touch to discuss how we can work together.

Lisa is a true superstar!

As well as taking on Refugee Routes (and cycling triple her target!) she also makes bread and preserves for us to sell for donations.

The Bike Project does an amazing job. When refugees come here, they have such a tough time. A bike saves them money, helps them get around and improves their wellbeing.
