Customised Metro Folding E-bike for Beder

We’re thrilled to have donated a customised Metro LS to this vital charity. The eye-catching folding electric bike will tour across the country by the Beder team and its ambassadors, raising awareness on the importance of mental health, encouraging people to get in the saddle to support their well-being.

The partnership kicks off on the 16th of June a team of Beder riders on VOLT e-bikes will take part in the British Heart Foundation’s London to Brighton cycle ride.

VOLT Managing Director and Co-Founder James Metcalfe commented,

Mental health is one of the biggest issues facing society today and cycling is proven to help. Both Beder and VOLT are dedicated to actively engaging with local communities and contributing to a happier and healthier future. Through this shared commitment, we hope to drive positive action across the UK, get more people active, and show them that you can have fun whilst doing it!

Razzak Mirjan, Founder of Beder said:

We’re delighted to add VOLT bikes to our list of trusted partners and supporters. The team have matched our enthusiasm for normalising the conversation around mental health and we can’t wait to collaborate on a host of impactful events.

Having launched Beder FC, promoted by the likes of David Beckham and Marvin Sordell, and a cookbook with recipes from Gordon Ramsay, Yotam Ottolenghi and many more, Beder is a charity challenging how we talk about suicide prevention and mental health. This new partnership with VOLT is the next step in continuing to challenge these stigmas, stimulate dialogue and raise awareness.
