Bike for Good is currently delivering a project for children & young people in the Greater Govanhill area. The project is called ‘Govanhill Gears’ and aims to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of children & young people in the local area through a variety of cycling activities. The project aims to increase the connections that children & young people have with their local community.
There are currently two regular activities running from our South hub, along with occasional day trips and events.
Govanhill Gears activities
Youth Fix Your Own Bike (YFYOB) or Build Your Own BMX (BYOBMX)
Children aged 10-18 years are invited to come and repair their own bike, or build up a donated bike. We provide tools, stands, spare parts and mechanic instruction.
Kids Cycle Club
Children aged 8-16 years who are able to cycle without stabilisers are invited to come join our cycle rides around the local parks. We provide bikes, helmets, and instructors.
No need to book, first come first serve, if the session is full then you will get priority the following week.
I have learnt a lot of new skills, I feel more confident, I feel healthier & happier. If I could come to Bike for Good every day that would be the best. It’s nice to meet new people here and things will start to get better in your life.
I want to work at Bike for Good when I am grown up. I will fix the bikes. I will teach people to ride.
I feel more confident and more loud!
