Mohammed's story

Mohammed was one of the first people we helped to travel to work by bike. He'd got a new job in retail in the centre of Nottingham and wanted to cycle to his new job in order to keep fit and save money - but he lacked a bike.

He was referred to Nottingham Gets 2 Work and Gina went along with him to Bulwell Bike Club to help him get kitted out. Kev from the Bike Club helped find the right sized bike for Mohammed and adjusted the it to suit him. All of our bikes are refurbished by professional bike mechanics and are handed over with a month’s warranty.

Afterwards, Mohammed cycled back with Gina who helped with journey planning, provided a cycle map, helmet, lights, quality D-Lock and cable, with a demonstration of the best way to lock a bike.

Mohammed cycled to Bulwell Bike Club a few days later for a small free of charge adjustment (which we encourage) and is now enjoying cycling to work regularly.
