Massive thanks to Jimmy Khan and UCLan for the donation of 13 superb children’s bikes. Having delivered Bikeability in Preston for 9 years this is a wonderful and very generous gesture. We are already making excellent use of the bikes, enabling us to reach more children and make our service even more inclusive. Thank you University of Central Lancashire! ... See MoreSee Less
