About this cause
We help the community by recycling and repairing bicycles which can then be bought for a small donation to encourage people to get riding and keep fit. It also gives some people more independence as they can be used for work or pleasure. Useful skills are shared and friendships are made, as well as being good for the environment because less bicycles are being thrown away when they could be repaired.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our service encourages people to recycle bicycles which don't need to be discarded, thereby discouraging waste, and it teaches people useful skills. It also brings people taking part together for meaningful social interaction and the sharing of knowledge. We also hope it will get people in the community riding safely together.
