Stephen 'Ace' Doyle - Nightingale project

Stephen Doyle standing by his bike, supplied again courtesy of Interlinkx CiC and Stoke Newington Police station. This was done under the agreement that young Stephen would take responsibility for his new bike and keep it long term by using the lock supplied with it in return for him being a good volunteer and supporter of the Nightingale bike project. Stephen attends with regularity and is always helpful and respectful to the club, it's members and staff. He has managed to keep the bike in his possession for a record length of time and aims to keep this up because he has become...'too attached to my street machine'

Don't rush!

The evidence above shows that youth bike maintenance clubs are not just about learning to turn spanners and pump pumps. Jez Peter from Nightingale's bike club bears witness to this, the positive change in him of late is distinct and clear.

Alfie and Jez stand by the bike they have got together that was donated to the project by Stoke Newington Police Station. Alfie is a good young bike mechanic who helped his friend Jez get this bike in a fit and road worthy condition.
