About the venue: Capital of Cycling is a coalition of charities and community groups who aim to increase cycling for well-being, social and environmental change in Bradford. A bike can be a particularly empowering tool for a refugee or asylum seeker. We’ve started the Cycling to Sanctuary and Riding with Refugees projects, enabling refugees to gain access to bikes and be empowered to ride and maintain them. Dave Robison, of Capital of Cycling says “Over the last three years we have been developing a large community cycling hub based in central Bradford, and are thrilled to be able to use the space for this wonderful exhibition.”
