One such project is Lambeth council’s estates project Bike Hubs. Working with People Empowering People (shown above), we will be visiting six estates around the borough over the summer fixing up residents’ bikes. They will also be giving cycle confidence advice and leading rides to bike related leisure destinations, such as the Herne Hill Velodrome or the Brockwell BMX track.
The abandoned bikes are essential for training others how to build and repair bikes.The restored bikes are sold on cheaply to someone who wants to cycle but can’t afford a new bike. This money is then used to help fund the project.
