In memory

The Great Bristol Bike Appeal


Help Needed! Accessible storage for Two's Company Tandems

Two's Company, our tandem riding project for young people and adults who are blind or visually impaired, has a fleet of 10 tandems and we are always on the lookout for a free, dry and secure location in central Bristol where they can live!

The space would need to be accessible on Saturdays and Sundays, and occasional evenings, ideally near to the city centre, Create Centre or near the Bristol and Bath Cycle Path.
