Bike Newham, Bike Europe’s sister project, was inspired entirely by the excitement generated at the Swift by the Bike Europe project. The Bike Europe team were heavily involved in organising and running the Bike Newham project utilising the skills gained from their ride through Europe.
The project enabled young people to plan and take part in a range of cycling activities.
Workshops involved practical hands-on activities on:
- cycle maintenance
- safe cycling techniques
- route planning
- map reading
- first aid
- expedition planning
- camp craft
- nutrition for performance activities
- training and stretching regimes
