The Bicycle Academy
The Bicycle Academy is truly inspirational. The Bicycle Academy teaches people how to make bikes. You keep the skills and give your first bike to someone who really needs it. They give people the lessons, skills and kit to design and make their own bikes. But there’s a big difference. Each student at The Bicycle Academy will make a bike designed especially to use in Africa. Students keep the skills they learn and their first bike will go to someone who really needs it. Once they’ve made their frame for Africa, graduates can come back to our workshop to hone their skills and build their own frames. Everyone wins.
