Bike Rental Project
We are in the process of working with CTC and Hampshire County Council on setting up a small bike hire scheme in Aldershot, giving bikes out on 2-week hires to job seekers and those on benefits. Part of the aim is to help people get to job interviews, as well as experiencing cycling and being keen to take it up.
We'll be given a fleet of 12 bikes to maintain and are looking for 2 lead volunteers to help in assisting a team of 4-6 young people. We'll also be given 3 sets of workshop tools and equipment. CTC are providing over £2500 worth of training for the lead volunteers and the young people. We are keen to get this up and running by 1st November.
Time commitment we expect to be one or two sessions a week on an evening or weekend (each session being 2 hours long).
This is a great opportunity to join a social enterprise in a voluntary capacity at the very start – helping it grow into something bigger from the first quarter of 2015 to look like a bit like The Guildford Bike Project. We are working with Rushmoor Borough Council and Grainger PLC to launch "The Rushmoor Bike Project" (working title) in 2015, refurbishing and selling old bikes, as well as offering servicing and community workshops. This should become a fairly decent sized operation fairly quickly, with potential paid employment for 2 people.
Apologies for this cold call type email – but I really hope you've made it this far through the email! If you are interested in finding out more then please do not hesitate to contact me, or if you know of others who might be keen or have a cycling network you can send this on to then please feel free to do so.
Ideally I'd need to know peoples interest by the end of the month so that we can get the appropriate training booked in. We are really excited about this project and the huge difference it can make to the young people we are working with as well as raising the profile of cycling in the borough.
Hope to speak to you soon!

Type-A Time Trials 2015
Following from my previous article about the 2015 Christmas 10-mile Time Trial, the current situation is that there have been no volunteers to organise this event and I have therefore removed it from the event applications for 2015.
