Recycled Bicycles for a Better World

Queensland August Newsletter

 

Bikes 4 Life is a global community initiative that is dedicated to providing donated bicycles to people, particularly youth, who are underprivileged, aimed at helping the most vulnerable, isolated and neglected groups within society. It is our mission to collect, restore and provide bicycles to some of the most marginalised & impoverished communities in Australia and around the world.

This year we are planning to send bikes to a remote and needy community in Cape York. We needs bikes donated from Queensland for this particular project! Donate your bike today!!

 

How Can I Help?

Make a donation of a bicycle regardless of condition, tragic bikes will be cannibalised for spare parts and carbon fibre bikes will be assessed as unsuitable for disadvantaged communities and will be sold off for income generation. The better condition the bike however, the sooner it will reach someone in need!

Donated bike perfect for our projects!

A donated bike that we will restore and donate to someone in need of sustainable transport.

Fundraising for our next container shipment; and to fight cancer

With the new container being loaded up next week we’re in full fundraising mode to pay for its shipping. One of the things we’re doing, which is also helping clear some desperately needed space in our workshop, is to start listing some vintage and high-end parts we’ve come by up for auction on eBay.

The money from these auctions will help us send our next container off; so please, bid and share with your bikey-friends. Lots more stuff is being listed over the coming weeks, so check back from time to time.

Don’t forget also we need you next week to help load up the container.
