The Avenues Bicycle Project

Charity description

The Avenues Bicycle Project logo
The Avenues Bicycle Project is a small, not for profit organisation that recycles bicycles across Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire in the following ways:

1) Since 2011, we have sent one container of 400 refurbished bikes a year to West Africa c/o The Village Bicycle Project.  Once the bikes reach West Africa they are distributed to farmers, health workers, school teachers, students and school children who are living, working and studying in rural areas

2) Before shipping a bike to West Africa, we send it to HMP Humber or HMP Lindholme bike repair workshops c/o The Margaret Carey Foundation. This means that prisoners can have a day time occupation and learn bike repair and maintenance skills and we get a fully refurbished bike for West Africa

3) Bicycles that are not suitable for refurbishment at the prisons are given to Push Iron, a Youth Development Service project. The bikes are broken for spares and young people build their own bikes from scratch - and achieve a Youth Development Award in bike maintenance skills.

Charity No: 1163510
