We are delighted to announce that the MCF Bradford Bikery has won a Cycling UK award. The MCF Bradford Bikery was awarded National winner best group achievement.
MCF Bradford Bikery joining forces with Capital of Cycling provided practical help and support to asylum seekers and refugees in Bradford through their “Cycling to Sanctuary” initiative. During the Big Bike Revival the MCF Bradford Bikery gave away over 100 bikes that had been refurbished in MCF prison workshops. Some of the recipients are in absolute transport poverty so a bike can be a crucial tool. They also provide group activities, bike repair and organised rides, giving people positive experience and helping them integrate into the local community
The awards were presented at the Cycling UK Conference in Birmingham on Saturday 7 October. Pictured is MCF Bradford Bikery volunteer Rebecca Wedderburn with Chris Boardman.
