  • Creating a list of businesses in Cambridge that use cycles as a core part of their business
  • Writing an article about the project for our magazine 

We’re dedicated to providing an internship programme of a high standard which will be beneficial for the intern’s professional development. As a charitable organisation, we believe it is important that any internship we offer should be paid, high-quality, open and accessible. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
