Started in July 2018 the project aims to provide residents in some of the most deprived areas of Lancashire with a recycled bike to help encourage them to become active, but also provide wider benefits such as making them more mobile for securing employment
•The funding partners involved in the Cycle Recycle project are Lancashire County Coucil Waste Management, Lancashire County Council Access Fund Team and Active Lancashire. In addition to this there are four local CIC's that deliver workshops for the project who are Cycles Recycled, Cycle Roots, Bike Works and Newground
•The project works by collecting bikes from four waste sites in Lancashire, which with a little bit of work can be made roadworthy again
•The bikes that are collected are then used to deliver Cycle Recycle Workshops, which involves six unemployed people attending a two day workshop. During the workshop they renovate a bike, so it is roadworthy at the end of the two days and they then get to keep that bike.
