About Us

ReCYCLE is an award-winning bicycle recycling and education programme based at Goldwyn School in Ashford, Kent.  Students work with professional bicycle mechanics and learn how to fix and refurbish bicycles in a positive and supportive environment – benefitting from one-to-one mentoring.  We have a high success rate in helping them improve their attendance, behaviour and self-esteem.  To date, over 50 young people have got involved and the project continues to get excellent feedback from both students and staff.  The project – run by a local not-for-profit company Cycle Community CIC – has also generated over 2000 affordable refurbished bicycles for reuse in the Ashford community.  Have a look at our new video to get a better idea of what we do:  ReCYCLE Your Bike – YouTube

We are kindly supported by Kent County Council, Ashford Borough Council, Kent Community Foundation and The Redhill Trust.
