'The Bike Project' is a charitable initiative that provides refugees with second-hand bikes. In light of the current refugee crisis, many companies are looking for ways to lend a helping hand. This project ensures that asylum-seeking refugees have a reliable source of transportation.

The Bike Project is based in London and it is run by several refugees who have settled in the city. The project provides incoming refugees with second-hand bikes that they can use to save on transportation costs while traveling throughout the city. The charity not only provides refugees with bicycles, but it also teaches these individuals about bike repair. These workshops bring refugees together and help foster a sense of community around cycling.

The charitable initiative gives refugees a reliable way of getting around the city and the skills necessary to fix and repair their bikes when necessary.
