We’re excited to be working with our partners to provide learning opportunities for young people in two locations across Bradford. We’ve filled the first of these, which is a 4-week course based at Bradford Bikery in partnership with Incommunities and Bradford City Council giving young people the chance to earn a bicycle maintenance qualification, plan a bike ride and keep the bike they have fixed plus free light helmet and lock!

The Bike to the Future programme has been developed with one of our volunteers and we’ll be delivering a second later in the year on the Scholemoor estate in partnerhip with Scholemoor Community Centre and Fresh Start 4U funded by the Big Lottery.

Based within social housing in Little Horton, near Bradford city centre, Bradford Bikery are also working with the Brathay Trust and Princes Trust to provide work placements for young mechanics who will be recycling bikes this autumn at the Bikery.  In partnership with Fresh Start 4U, Bradford Bikery are very pleased to have supported one of our core volunteers in finding full time work.

Training courses and cycling opportunities are being announced all the time, so email bradfordbikery@gmail.com for details and to stay posted.
