Environmental charity Stroud Valleys Project has teamed up with the Gloucestershire Bike Project to help collect unused and unwanted bikes on the day of its fundraising bike ride on June 23.

Gloucestershire Bike Project is a not-for-profit social enterprise, restoring old bikes to give them a new lease of life. It also encourages safe cycling by helping local people to learn bike repair and maintenance skills.

“So if you have a bike you no longer need and would like to see it put to good use, you can bring your old bike along to Stratford Park on the June 23 or pledge a bike donation and they will collect it from you later, at your convenience, “ said Julie.

Stroud Valleys Project sponsored bike ride has a choice of 10, 20, 36 mile routes for all abilities plus two 70 mile routes for experienced cyclists, one goes to Wales and the other up into the Cotswolds. It starts and finishes at Stratford Park where, after the ride, there will be an opportunity to picnic and listen to bike powered music and other entertainments provided by Museum in the Park and Transition Stroud.
