Objectives

Bike for Good started in July 2010, unfunded in a small stall in Glasgow’s famous Barras market. 7 years later we have two branches. An amazing team of 50 + individuals, and we changed thousands of lives.

Whether we sell second hand bikes, we teach you cycle training or bike maintenance skills, we just try to fulfil our mission.

  • Tagline is changing lives through cycling.
  • Vision is an environment where everyone benefits from riding a bicycle
  • Mission is to enable people in Scotland to cycle as their mode of transport

Activities

Bike for Good, has the following meanings:

  • We refurbish, repair and teach communities how to maintain bicycles; once you have the skills a bike is for good.
  • We use the bike to do good actions: we improve the environment, teach skills, and improve mental and physical health.
  • Once you get into cycling, it is for good – not only summer time!
