BIKES 4 LIFE SYDNEY ANNOUNCEMENT

To our wonderful friends and supporters

Bikes 4 Life Sydney is going through some exciting changes.  As a result, our warehouse in Brookvale will be closed from Monday 19th March as we look to move to a more cost effective and sustainable model which will enable broader community involvement and allow us more flexibility and mobility.

Our Sunday community workshops have given us the privilege of meeting some amazing local people who have selflessly volunteered their time to help us prepare our bikes to gift to those most in need.  Bikes 4 Life have lovingly restored, prepared and shipped over 8,000 bikes since we started in 2012.  Of these, the Sydney warehouse have contributed almost 2,000 – and we could not have done it without you!  A big, sincere heartfelt thanks to those of you who have in some way contributed!

There are too many people to thank – but a special mention must go to Mark Nicholson for his outstanding ongoing commitment as our Warehouse Manager in Sydney.  Mark will be working with us to roll out our new model … we will keep everyone updated as this progresses.

In the interim, Bikes 4 Life Sydney workshops will be taking a very short hiatus. We are looking at a regular alternative solution for our workshops, and will advise where this will be, as soon as we have secured new space.  We will however be accepting bike drop offs at our wonderful sponsors premises – Visa Global Logistics.  See below for drop off dates and address details.

Peace and Love

FAREWELL BROOKVALE

After 3 wonderful years, Bikes 4 Life Sydney warehouse in Brookvale has come to an end.  We are re-inventing our model to become more cost effective and sustainable, which will enable broader community involvement and allow us more flexibility and mobility.

To every single one of our volunteers and supporters who have either donated a bike, attended our workshops, had a corporate day with us or simply just spread the word, we are forever grateful!

This is not the end, just an exciting new beginning!  Check our Facebook posts and our website for updates.  We will be able to announce our new location soon!

Thank you to these legends for helping with the pack up!

CAMBODIA 2016 PROJECT

Our 2016 Cambodian project was managed by our brilliant Bikes 4 Life Sydney volunteers – right from preparing bikes at our Sydney warehouse, to packing the container – and best of all, 13 of our crew made the trip to Cambodia to see for themselves how gratefully our bikes are received.  Well done Sydney volunteers – you guys are the best!!
