If you’re clicking on Cycling Weekly, chances are you love getting in the saddle. You can put your miles on the road to good use by taking part in The Bike Project’s Refugee Routes challenge, helping refugees to get a bike of their own.

This "build-your-own" cycling challenge is versatile enough to fit around your own fitness level and ability. Your objective is simple – ride a distance equivalent to journeys made by refugees on a common migration routes, and fundraise as you go. All proceeds will help more refugees and asylum seekers get newly refurbished bikes.
