Help ship bikes, transform lives and empower communities in Africa
Re~Cycle is Go Travel Solutions’ (co-ordinators of the Smartgo scheme) chosen charity. Employees from sustainable travel specialist, Go Travel Solutions have been helping Colchester-based charity, Re~Cycle with the repair and shipping of refurbished bikes to Africa.
How does it work?
Re~Cycle receive unwanted and disused bicycles at collection points all over the UK and through their partnership with Halfords.
They inspect each bike and any deemed unsafe are stripped for spares and recycled.
The good bikes are then shipped to trusted African partners, who run bicycle projects on the ground; refurbishing, distributing and maintaining bikes, running bicycle maintenance workshops and teaching courses in safe riding.
