Cyclists wanted! Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank

Fri 15 Jan 16:00 pm
Ringcross Community Centre, 60 Lough Rd, London, N7 8RH
Delivering essential supplies to local neighbourhood families

Ringcross Community Centre has been operating a large foodbank since the start of lockdown, and currently offers food and essentials to over 70 Islington households every week.

Islington Cycle Club have also offered assistance to the project, by arranging a food collection pickup from shops and supermarkets, often using a cargo e-bike.

Goodgym have offered to assist with delivering shopping parcels to various households around Islington (no more than 2 miles from the community centre).

Would you like to be a foodbank cycle courier?

All deliveries will be prepared in advance, with addresses and contact phone numbers attached to the parcels.

You will need:

A bike

A method for carrying pretty heavy stuff

This can be pannier bags, or a large rucksack (12 ltrs or larger). Most deliveries would be the size of 4 shopping bags of items, so a larger capacity bag will make your trip easier. A few spare bags will be available to borrow if required.

There are 3 large bags available to borrow if you are without a suitable rucksack!

Some sort of map

Google maps on your phone would be fine.

Confidence when cycling on London streets

We are looking for safe cyclists! Steady, controlled and predictable cycling is preferred over speedy deliveries!

Any questions, feel free to contact Simon Fitzmaurice (Islington Trainer).

Cameron Peers has has earned their community cape by completing their first community mission. Fri 16 Oct 2020

Cameron completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Cameron was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Cameron Peers has done their first good deed with GoodGym. Fri 16 Oct 2020

Cameron is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.

Elephant Bikes on Parade

Fri 16 Oct
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

3 Goodgym cyclists arrived at a really busy Ringcross Community Centre today- lots of volunteers bustling around sorting packages and organising delivery vehicles! Trainer Simon rolled out the pink Alexandra Wylie Foundation cargo bike for his deliveries, while new attendee Cameron (welcome!) helped Lindsay, the volunteer coordinator, with finding telephone numbers for our clients. Adrian arrived with his bike, grabbed our huge red rucksack, and immediately got to work with his deliveries.

Within an hour, the three of us brought shopping parcels to 7 households around Caledonian Road, Archway and Islington. Awesome work folks! Trainer Simon agreed to take one of our massive drysacks home with him, to mend it for next week's session. Watch this space!
