Our Members > Cycle-R

Cycle-R is a Cannock Chase-based bike recycling charity, who re-service old bikes and sell the high quality safety-checked products on at a reduced price to make good use of old bikes and sustain a training-programme for volunteers. It is run by both staff and volunteers, giving opportunities to young people and those who are unemployed to gain transferable skills and enhance their job-searching prospects.

Their work aims to preserve the ecology of Cannock Chase by reducing waste there as well as having an impact on public health by encouraging cycling. Cycle-R also operate a bike hire scheme. They have recycled more than 3000 bikes so far.

On joining SWM in 2019, Cycle-R commented: “We are a bicycle recycling charity and feel that Sustainability West Midlands offer the support and service necessary to encourage and enhance sustainability initiatives in the West Midlands.”
