Learn 2 Ride: Next steps

We've had a small but passionate group delivering Learn 2 Ride sessions to migrant and former refugee women for the past 18 months.

A new project called Bike Bridge has got funding to deliver a wrap around cycling project for both migrant women and men. Bike Bridge will teach the basics of riding a bike as well as on-road skills training, bike maintenance, encourage social riding and provide financial support to buy bikes.

Get in touch with Meg if you want to help out as an cycle skills instructor, a mechanic or if you know someone who could benefit from this project (meg.christie[at]
