Recyke-a-bike is a Fallin Community Enterprises initiative, which has been around since 2006. Our overarching aims are the relief of poverty and improvements in health, education and the environment.
We began as a small recycling social enterprise that quickly grew into a job club using the bike recycling as work experience. We've grown to include training services and cycling outreach work, in addition to our bike recycling and sales. Our most recent addition is our lovely community café.
Our aims are to help people, our local community and environment by:
supporting people into employment, education, training and volunteering
helping more people to choose cycling for low carbon transport, better health and wellbeing, and of course for fun
stopping bikes ending up in landfill
Put simply, we really want to get more people into work and more bikes into the community.
Comments from happy customers:
"I never thought I would see the day my son would manage to ride a bike. Thank you so much for giving my son this opportunity."
"Great service and very happy with my purchase, which was smooth rolling and excellent through the gear change for a vintage bike. Testament to the bike mechanics - 10/10."
"Thank you so much for all the fun we had on our bikes...We feel more confident using our bikes after this programme."
- All at Lifestart, Forth Valley College.
