After completing the ISBC social enterprise course in at the Ludgate in Skibbereen in 2019 we joined The Circular Economy Academy at the Rediscovery Centre, Ballymun, Dublin. With their help and guidance our first steps are to open a workshop developed on the principles of the circular economy.
Unwanted bikes will be re built through educational training programmes. This enables unwanted resources to stay in circulation for longer through reuse and repair and reduces the creation of waste. The workshop will also complement our cycle training by helping individuals and families maintain their bikes.
