Groundwork Cycle Recycle Project

Cycle-Recycle was organised by the regeneration charity Groundwork in Islington to help young people from a disadvantaged neighbourhood learn about bike safety and maintenance.

The project gave the participants a chance to learn new skills as well as raising awareness of sustainable transport.

16 young people from the Almorah Youth Centre in Islington (mainly 10-14  ear olds) participated in 5 sessions during half-term week in February 2003.

Groundwork's Team  Manager Steve Thomas said: "Cycle-Recycle gives young people a chance to build their very own bike, it's educational and helps raise awareness of greener transport methods and it's also great fun".

Funding came from the London Cycling Campaign, the Islington Community Environmental Scheme and the Environmental Action Fund.
