Cycle Saviours is a new social enterprise whose mission is to save unwanted bikes, save the environment and help get people on their bikes. In addition to our work recycling, repairing and servicing bikes we have recently been awarded a large contract to maintain bikes for a new Milton Keynes’ public bike rental scheme and are also expanding our community engagement services to encourage more people to get on their bikes.

On Friday 21st we held our Graduation event to celebrate the achievements of our trainees. It was fantastic to such a great turn out with parents, siblings, carers and friends supporting our
trainees for their graduation day AND to see so many of them dressed to impress!
The day consisted of awards that celebrate the successes of 2016-2017, yummy food and a photo booth. Congratulations to the award winners and all the trainees who achieved this year, we wish you all the best in your new ventures.
