>> About Bici Libre <<
Bici Libre is a project of the AMS Bicycle Co-op and Bike Kitchen. The initiative rebuilds used bikes for the use of migrant farm workers across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Farm workers that come from other countries via the Temporary Foreign Workers Program often live at the farms on which they work, far from town centres and with limited access to basic necessities.
Their time off is limited and with mobility restrictions, workers often face difficulties accessing services like banking, medical care and groceries. Their goal is to support workers during their stay and to ensure transportation is not a limitation in their life in Canada.
