What we do

Bikelinks helps Community Groups get started on cycling projects to encourage young people to: learn about bikes, find local routes, fix up old donated cycles, provide workshop and job related skills,use cycles as a source of cheap and clean transport, and develop health benefits.

Get going Grants

Bikelinks can offer Community Groups a "get going" grant in the region of 200 worth of materials or tools.

We can also help with hands on training to get the project started, giving your staff vaulable help and assistance whilst the project develops.
