Back in peak lockdown, we chatted to the Bristol Bike Project about how they were adapting and coping with the current situation.
Meaningful Journey - Connection won our Impact Award at the 2020 Adventure Uncovered Film Festival. It tells the story of the Bristol Bike Project, a member-led co-operative operating out of Stokes Croft Bristol. We were so inspired by the story (the film is brilliant) that we got in touch with the Founder James Lucas as part of our Conversations series.
The Bristol Bike Project is only partly about bikes. It's also about community building; helping to reduce isolation and alienation in various groups across the city as well as empower and encourage everyone who walks through the workshop door.
