Youth group Y Sort It have celebrated the launch of a new workshop.

Residents from across West Dunbartonshire were invited along to the opening of their new Street Bike premises on Saturday, April 27.

The project is aimed at getting young people on their bikes to cycle to school, college or work and promote the benefits of an active lifestyle, as well as saving the planet from unnecessary carbon emissions.

Street Bikes also aims to save as many bikes as possible from going to landfill, to help save the environment.

And with two bike mechanic workers and volunteers, Y Sort It will now be offering basic bike maintenance workshops, giving young people the skills to fix their own bikes and learn about basic upkeep of their bikes.

Free, recycled bikes will be given out in the community, and fleet bikes will be available for hire for cycles led by qualified leaders.

Regular planned bike rides will be held for young people to go on cycling adventures.

The charity recently approached a graffiti artist, known as Barry the Cat, to design an eye-catching mural for their new premises.

Barry said: “I decided to use the corner of the wall as the focal point with the design wrapping around the two sides.

“The mural aims to reflect the intention of the project in a fun and colourful way.”

On the day, there was live music from SKapade, face-painting, home-baking and all things bike related.

The charity wrote on their Facebook page: “A massive thank you to everyone who made it down, who helped out, and of course our awesome young people who have been involved with the project so far.”
