About The Bike Project

We provide an innovative solution to one of the most pressing problems facing asylum seekers and refugees on arrival to the UK: access to transport when living on a limited income, which for asylum seekers is as little as £5.66 per day.

Our mission is simple: each year we match refugees and asylum seekers with the many thousands of bikes that go abandoned or unloved around the country. We then go on to support these new bike owners to realise the emotional, practical and physical benefits of cycling.

10 years since that first bike donation, we are about to donate our 10, 000th bike and have expanded the project to include multiple programs, from refugee befriending services to women-only cycling classes.

We have supported tens of thousands of refugees to get access to bikes, learn to cycle and created a community of colleagues, refugees, volunteers and supporters. And we’ve grown rapidly in the last few years, from £720k turnover in 2018, to £2.2m turnover in 2021.

Despite our successes, this is just the start. The demand from refugees for our work far outstrips our ability to meet it so we are looking to continue to grow until every refugee in the UK has the opportunity to start cycling.

If you want to be a part of that, read on!
