Buy a gift for a refugee!

You can buy a cycling lesson for a woman refugee to help build her confidence on the bike.

Consider making a transformative impact in the life of a woman refugee by providing her with a unique and empowering gift: a cycling lesson. Bicycles hold immense significance for refugees and people seeking asylum, symbolising not only a means of transportation but also a pathway to independence and freedom. By gifting a cycling lesson, you are offering her the opportunity to build confidence on the bike, enabling her to navigate her new surroundings with assurance and security.

How your gift helps

Many refugee women who come to the UK may not have cycled since they were a child, or never at all. Women cycling is shamed in many countries where the women we work with come from.

Not only that, for many refugee women it can be hard to make new friends and feel part of the community. 

The Bike Project's Pedal Power program is a women-led, women only cycling course. With qualified instructors, class members are taking through a robust cycling training course, teaching them everything from cycling itself, to safety, to confidence.

After 8 lessons, the women graduate from the program and are donated a bike, along with a comprehensive cycling safety kit.

Learning to cycle is a lifeline for women seeking asylum who are living on just £9 a day, and the Pedal Power students and instructors become a community. Of women, of friends, of family.

Your gift donation of £50 could cover the cost of a one hour cycling lesson with a FSI woman cycling instructor. Awesome!
