Lend a hand at our popular Bike Project

by Brushstrokes

At Brushstrokes Community Project, we run the Brushspokes Bike Project which provides our diverse set of service users with refurbished second-hand bikes, bike repair and in 2022 we also offered led bike rides, learn to ride sessions and bicycle maintenance classes. We’re looking for volunteers to support this increasingly popular project. We are particularly looking for volunteers to help out at our regular bicycle repair sessions, and help organise led rides. Knowledge about bicycles or bike repair isn’t essential – we equally value people’s willingness to get involved, their love of cycling and their tea making abilities.
