From family STEAM learning to interactive exhibitions. There's something for everyone.

Gearing Up: Behind the Frame

Bicycles can be a catalyst for a new lease of life and new opportunities. Coventry Transport Museum commissioned artist Jaskirt Boora to uncover the stories of everyday people and their bikes through connecting to pioneering community initiatives, regional cycling equity schemes and Coventry’s public.

Motorvate is driven by a need in the community to create positive learning experiences for young people at risk of exclusion. Their bicycle scheme has transformed participants’ lives who can access skills development, while utilising the skills of those who want to give back to their community.

At Sähëlï, bicycles have brought women of all ages together, challenging personal and society's perceptions of what they can achieve while creating lifelong friendships. Sähëlï is open to all women, providing bikes, safety equipment and qualified cycle instructors for free. Many women join Sähëlï with little or no experience riding a bike, and go on to significant achievements, including riding on the road, taking part in Vélo Birmingham and Midlands, and becoming cycle instructors themselves.

Jaskirt Boora is an award-winning photographer whose work focuses on a socially engaged practice using portraiture and documentary photography.

This body of work is part of the exhibition ‘Gearing Up: From Saddle to Spoke’ at Coventry Transport Museum.
