Sarah Ansari

Director of the Board

Sarah has worn a number of different hats, or helmets, since she first became involved with Nottingham Bikeworks in 2016. First as a volunteer, soon after as a member of staff and now as a Board member – having left to be a full time mum.

Her background and working experiences in urban development planning and sustainable transport in the UK, Asia and Africa have given her a set of relevant core skills: organisational development and capacity building, community project planning and delivery, budgeting and financial management, grant fund raising and tender writing.

Sarah continues to be inspired to support Nottingham Bikeworks because of the positive impact it has on people’s lives, regardless of who they are. She believes it has great potential to grow and become a model of a sustainable social enterprise in Nottingham.

Having loved riding bicycles since she was very little, in 2011/12 she cycled her Thorn Sherpa 10,000 miles from Mexico to Argentina and is still processing all that she saw and experienced from my bike during that trip. At the last count Sarah owned five bikes. She also loves cooking (and eating), history, learning the piano and discovering new ginnels in Nottingham.
