  • Rebike project Rebike project

    Learn essential bike maintenance skills with the Rebike project. It covers the importance of health and safety, and the safe use of tools. You will learn how to keep your bike in a safe and roadworthy condition and make essential repairs. You will also be given the opportunity to achieve a qualification as evidence of your learning and pass your skills and knowledge on to other young people!

    If you don’t have your own bike, that’s fine – you can help repair and sell on unwanted bikes that have been donated to us. This can help raise funds for the project.

    You will also be given the opportunity to take part in some great events, for example the Wicksteed Park Soap Box Derby, as well as getting involved in community events, hopefully encouraging our local community to see the benefits of cycling!

    The Rebike project is for young people aged 10 to 19 years.
