Help break the cycle of homelessness.
On Sunday 19th September, Broadway, a West London-based homelessness charity, is launching Bike Broadway with an action-packed day of cycling.
The charity has been funded by the Community Cycling Fund for London to design a programme, Bike Broadway, to support homeless people in cycling as a means of transport, a way to improve health, learn new skills, and share skills through volunteering.
The programme will be officially launched on 19th September when service users, Broadway staff and members of the public are invited to get involved and get cycling to raise money for Broadway.
The day’s activities include a cycle challenge in the morning and a fun ride. Cyclists of all level of skills can join in with activities ranging from the very competitive to a leisurely slow paced ride in the afternoon.
Those taking part will be rewarded with a celebratory barbeque at the end of the day.
The Bike Broadway launch will start and finish in West London at the Broadway Centre in Shepherds Bush and the charity is still recruiting participants and volunteer marshals to help on the day.
By volunteering and taking part on the day, you can help raise funds for Broadway’s work and support to charity to make a wheel difference to their service users and your community!
