- The BRP (Bike Rescue Project) is modeled on a highly successful earn-a-bike program. Based on a 2 hour per week commitment over a 10 week period. Students will spend the first 14 hours of the program learning all aspects of bike mechanics and restoration. Highly experienced facilitators and volunteer mentors will ensure that every nut and bolt is covered in this comprehensive course. Having learnt some amazing bike-skills, participants will then select a donated bike. The remaining 6 hours of the course will be spent restoring their chosen bike back to its former glory. http://dismantle.org.au/our-work/the-bike-rescue-project/
