Footscray has a growing population and the use of bicycles is commonplace.  Our plan is to collect donated bicycles from members of the community, repair them and provide them for free to children and those members of our community in need.

In order to be sustainable, we will also repair and sell recycled bicycles, plus provide important bike education to our community through practical school and community education programs.

Programs will include learn to ride, basic bicycle maintenance, plus a build a bike program and a bicycle exchange program for children, refugees and those in need.

Benefits for our Inner West Community

  • Repair and recycling of bikes back into our community
  • Donation of repaired bikes to refugees and asylum seekers
  • Learn to Ride programs
  • Practical skill training programs in bike repair and maintenance
  • Promotion of cycling as an affordable, healthy and environmentally friendly mode of transport
  • A community hub for a cross-section of the community to meet, learn and share
