The Bike Shop isn’t any old shop - it formed out of The Bike Project, a charity getting refugees cycling in London.
We do this by fixing and donating second-hand bikes. The fixing is done down at our workshop, where refugees learn the basics in bike mechanics, before fixing a bike up for themselves. For refugee women that are new to cycling, we run cycling lessons.
By attending our workshop, all beneficiaries get actively involved in the process as much as possible, build up their skills, and form lasting friendships.
All the bikes we fix are donated to the project. Of these donations, we use The Bike Shop to sell the most valuable ones, to generate funds to keep the project going.
This way 100% of The Bike Shop proceeds are put into getting more refugees cycling.
