The Big Bike Revival 2017 – We’re running loads of events, watch this space for more information
Today’s BigBikeRevival event: Big Bike Jumble. It finished just as the rain started, which was good timing. Thanks to all the jumblers who came along!
We need your stories!
“I remember coming back to cycling after many, many years as a driver – my car was in for MOT and I borrowed a friend’s spare bike to get to work that day – I had a moment when I felt like a kid again on my bike having an adventure. And that was why I started cycling again.”
If you could help us by telling why you ride it could help us get more people to get on a bike too, and that’s got to be a good thing! So please, email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org or tell us about it on Facebook, and we can share it with people who might just be tempted to enjoy the freedom of the bicycle.
We are passionate about getting more people riding more affordable bikes more often.
Our dedicated team of volunteers is here to help you to learn to ride, ride more safely and build simple skills to keep your bike on the road to provide you with sustainable transport for life!
Ride on is a registered charity and has been going for nearly 7 years and, in that time we have put hundreds of people on bikes, given many more children taking their Bikeability course at school the chance to join in and learn how to be safe on the roads and helped 3 year old to 89 year old get cycling!
It all started with Martyn (CEO) sourcing and refurbishing donated bikes to take to Bikeability courses because many of the children he was teaching didn’t have their own. The idea snowballed and people understood the power of the project and donated not only kids bikes but adults bikes too.
So our main purpose started with getting kids active on bikes and safe on the roads.
We have now added to that by doing the same with adults so, as you can imagine we have a lot of time here working with spanners building affordable bikes for everyone. (The full detailed history is under “Our story”)
