Get ‘On Your Bike’ this summer

8 May 2018

The county council’s road safety team is supporting ‘On Your Bike’ by running free cycle training sessions for both children and adults. 

On Your Bike is a Charitable Social Enterprise based in Taunton. Its key aim is to train and employ the socially underprivileged, ex-servicemen and long term unemployed in servicing, recycling and selling second-hand bikes. Since being founded the charity has recycled or serviced more than 3000 bikes and helped over 50 individuals on their career paths.
