Funded by a grant from the CTC, Bike Club is a weekly evening club open to young people age 11-18 that takes place in our workshop. The members bring their own bikes to work on, with the help of our mechanics, or they can learn to work on bikes using one of our own machines. We are starting to refurbish some bikes for donation to local schools, and some of the members are working towards their mechanics’ qualifications.
Bike Club is grateful for the support of Brighton and Hove City Council Family Intervention Project as well as the Youth Offending Service. Through them we are able to attract young people who can particularly benefit from the workshop sessions.
