We know that mental health problems can make normal day to day life absolutely crushing, not just mentally but physically too. We want to set up one workshop and office to start off with in Lancashire,from which we can organise things like bicycle maintenance courses, with a view for the person/s, to achieve a qualification in bicycle maintenance/mechanics if they so wish or they can simply drop in for hot or cold drink,a chat,or to seek any help or advice. Further to that and hopefully with some help from the industry,we also can work towards getting people earning a qualification as a cycle training instructor too! 

First and foremost we would like to simply get more people with mental health problems,out of the house etc and on a bike! We also know that exercise in general can be REALLY beneficial,and with some low impact cycling to start you off,you will be feeling much better! 

Note: Error on completion date,this will be extended/rectified.
