The Bristol Bike Project

Fundraise For Us

Need an excuse to go on an adventure? Turn your pedal power into an awesome fundraising machine and help more people across Bristol get out on two wheels!

Become a BBP fundraising hero!

Whether you’re cycling halfway around the world or rolling along the cycle path to Bath, we’d love for you to use your adventure to support our community work.

The money you raise will support our Earn-a-Bike programmes, which rehome unwanted bicycles with those who need them most, including refugees and asylum seekers, people with long term health problems, ex-offenders and people on substance abuse recovery schemes. As well as providing access to sustainable and affordable transport, our Earn-a-Bike programmes focus on education and empowerment for the whole community.

It’s not just cycle rides you can use to support us! You could organise a bike building competition, a yoga class, or even a danceathon, and turn all that fun into something which also gives back to your local community. Check out our stories below to get some inspiration from some of our fabulous fundraisers to date.

Whatever ideas are bubbling in your wonderful heads, get in touch and we’ll support you to make the most out of your two-wheeled fun!
