Anna tours Bath on vintage bikes and grabs designer cycle bargains!

Jole Rider (pronounced Jolly Rider) is a charity that targets Africa to improve education and wellbeing in young people. This is mainly done by fixing up donated bikes and shipping them to Africa for kids to use for cycling to school. So to find out more, I met their lead mechanic for a bike ride.

The charity receives old bikes from the police and recycling companies, some of which are absolute vintage gems. Thanks to in-house know-it-all mechanic, David McKinven, these are often pulled out for refurbishment and sold to shops and individuals in England.

I had the privilege of borrowing a classic Malborough in 'café racer' style and touring around Bath in Somerset with David to find out more about the charity.

Accessible Cycling for people with disabilities

February 2010 saw the launch of a new cycling class specifically for people with disabilities and learning difficulties in Swindon. Since then, the range of bikes has grown and the classes are full.
Cycling For All, disability bikes at the County Ground, Swindon

Thanks to the Big Lottery Fund, we were able to purchase over 20 different specially adapted bikes to be used at the County Ground running track on a weekly basis. What started as a once a week class for the general public turned into a twice a week open class with four additional privately booked sessions per week. This doesn’t include one-off events and summer courses.
