Student Volunteer Army Bike Restoration Project

Last week a number of Student Volunteer Army (SVA) members took some old broken bikes that have been left on campus over the last few years to RAD bikes in the city and restored them!

It was a fantastic day, with many experienced and progressing bike repairer’s. One of the coolest parts is that the repaired bikes will be going to people whose bike’s have been stolen around campus – so watch this space! SVA have plenty more bikes to fix up so they are looking to continue this project over a few weekends. Keep an eye on the SVA Facebook page to see when the next bike restoration project is taking place!
