Bling Ya Bike
Bling Ya Bike is a project for talented young people. The project gives them the chance decorate and customise their bikes, skateboards, helmets, and saddlebags, imparting respect, creativity and responsibility.
The project aims to encourage young people to start a local micro enterprise or small business, imparting self-confidence, ambition and entrepeneurship.
Bling Ya Bike establishes a community through partner organisations and schools which perpetuate artistic endeavour, and provide positive out-of-school activities. The young people learn the art of bicycle maintenance, how to use tools, and through this, respect for property, community safety, responsibility, and recycling.
All students who complete the project receive a certificate of attendance, and the project is supported by the Metropolitan Police in Brixton.
