Imagine living on £36 a week. It's enough for food, perhaps, but what about travel? If you need a new pair of shoes, what sacrifices will you have to make? These hard choices are the daily reality of a refugee in London. Bikes to the Rescue! The Bike Project takes second-hand bikes, fixes them up and donates them to refugees and asylum-seekers. Why? A bike can save a refugee £21 a week in bus fares. Having fled persecution and atrocity in their homeland, a bike helps them access food banks, legal advice, healthcare, education and more.

I'll be competing in the men's Masters 2000m race for The Bike Project because nothing beats dry retching for a worthy cause.
We refurbish secondhand bikes to donate to refugees and asylum seekers.
