the bike project up and running!

Welcome to The Bristol Bike Project! We (Colin & James) have been up and running since the start of 2009, working to provide bicycles for Refugees & Asylum-Seekers in Bristol. We have had a fantastic response to our appeal for unwanted bicycles from the general public and have received and repaired all sorts of bicycles in various states of disrepair.

We are currently in the process of trying to obtain funding in order to make this project sustainable and if we are successful, have plans to extend this project to include other minority/underprivileged groups such as single parent families and detached youth. Please do get in touch if you have any suggestions for inner-city groups within Bristol that we could work with.

If you know a little about bikes and are interested in volunteering, please also get in touch!!


  1. Jimmy, your project rules. Keep up the good work.


  2. Just to say I saw the documentary about your project last night as part of CineMe Bristol and thought it was inspirational and brilliant. I hope you get more funding for such a great project.
