The Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust has managed to save 10 bikes from being thrown away in landfill, recycling them for use by the public.
The bikes were recovered by URGE Cycles and repaired to a road-worthy state. The bikes have a new lease of life and are ready to be used in the Trust’s flagship Get Active Wandle Valley project which hopes to encourage more people into cycling.

The funding to repair the bikes was from TfL’s Cycling Grants London, which has awarded the Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust a grant to provide better access to bikes and cycling for Wandle Valley residents.
The project, which is aimed at those new to cycling, particularly families, will break down barriers that stop people from cycling.
Cycling Grants London is a grants programme funded by Transport for London and administered by Groundwork London. The programme is aimed at groups that are traditionally under-represented in cycling (through income, health, ability, skills and access to information or equipment).
