Breaking the Cycle. Fixing Bikes, Saving Lives.
YES Outdoors offers free bike maintenance courses for young people in North London. The courses usually take place in the afternoon after school, and run for 5 days. Upon completion of the course, each participant receives a free bicycle to take home.
The course focusses on boosting self-confidence, by teaching a new skillset and thereby improving employment prospects through a series of practical workshops.

Update: We ran our first socially-distanced bike maintenance session since the Coronavirus outbreak began, in late July 2020. We continued to safely run courses through August, but have had to pause the workshops since the announcement of the U.K. November lockdown.
