|Utilizing second-hand bikes in a creative way where they become a “passport that opens up a city”.
Pioneering element of the project: Bike Buddy Scheme which matches refugee cyclists with buddy in their local area to help them build confidence using their bike.
|Why is this project considered good practice?
|Most refugees arrive in London with absolutely nothing, a bike can help them in accessing food banks, legal advice, health care, education, and if they receive official refugee status, a bike can help them in finding an employment.
|Since 2013 (no end date)
