What will London2012 mean for cycling? Jim and Dave Directors of social enterprise Bikeworks discuss

Jul 24, 2012, 12:14 PM, London, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, United Kingdom

Bikeworks is a social enterprise using bicycles and cycling as a tool to tackle social and environmental challenges at a community level. Since opening up in Tower Hamlets, East London in 2008 they've been delivering innovative community cycling initiatives across the capital. During this time they've supported many thousands of people into cycling for the first time, given thousands of old bicycles a new life, helped hundreds of homeless people gain skills and get jobs in the cycling industry & much much more.

Bikeworks success has been recognised in winning a number of awards including Best Social enterprise at the 2011 Private Business Awards by PWC & Best New social enterprise in the UK in 2009.

In the run up to the Olympics Directors Jim and Dave talk to sounddelivery's Jude Habib about their work and the opportunities London 2012 offers to the world of cycling.
