About this project

Bikes are diverted from landfill, refurbished by trained mechanics working with volunteers and young people that are not in mainstream education. We also work with reparation groups to engage them back into some form of learning or employment.

Bikes are then used to train cycling to children, young people and adults, are gifted to those most in need or sold at reduced rates through our community shop.
