Ree-Cycle goes back to school!

DSCN1025 (Large)

The new school went back to the Old Skool recently when Ree-Cycle took a selection of vintage BMX bikes to Dinnington Comprehensive.
The event organised in conjunction with Sustrans aims to raise awareness of different types of bikes, how they work and are maintained.
Youngsters from all year groups enjoyed putting the hikes through their paces and having a chat with owners Glynne and Keeley Ensor who were impressed by their manners, politeness and good behaviour.
Glynne said: “Some of the bikes are nearly 30 years old. The lads were impressed by how well they handled in comparison to newer models. I always say ‘they dont make em like they used to’!”
Hopefully Ree-Cycle will be doing similar events in the future.

New partnerships!

Ree-Cycle is proud to announce it will be working in partnership with Sustrans on projects in Rotherham schools. Starting with an event at Dinnington Comprehensive on Thursday March 21st, we will be holding workshops, explaining what we do, letting youngsters have a go on a few bikes and selling bits and bobs from the shop. We are delighted to be working with Sustrans as they are a charity promoting the use of travel by bike, foot or public transport thereby reducing our carbon footprint and protecting the environment, which is our ethos too.
We are also pleased to be members of and working with Rotherham and Barnsley Chamber. We believe it is important to support local businesses in these tough economic times and the chamber has given us invaluable help.
