Summary

The Finnish Bike Association, ECF’s Finnish member, have been running a cycle training workshop for migrants in the country since 2013. The project aims to empower those that have little or no experience of cycling before arriving in Finland, especially girls and women, to get out on their bikes. This helps their integration in Finland, allowing them to do everything from riding to school or work to becoming more independent in their daily lives. So far, the scheme has been such a success that they have been continually oversubscribed since 2018!
