Baisikel calls for volunteers and bikes
June 11, 2012 by Webmaster
A new project opens up opportunities for asylum seekers in London to get about.
A couple living in London concerned about the worsening conditions that asylum seekers find themselves, increasingly now dispersed outside the M25 but required to travel into central London for appointments, decided that there was a practical way that they could help. A year ago they set up Baisikel, a project where they renovate donated bikes and give them to asylum seekers. Many asylum seekers spend hours travelling with no money. Having a bike not only allows them to travel free but also offers some freedom in getting around.
