Pinelands Bicycle Initiative


Confronting reality

The bicycle initiative directly funds our youth programmes and low-income interventions.

Every day we come face to face with the paralysing effect that a lack of opportunity has on our community. From the poor or underprivileged to the marginalised, our commitment is the same, leave no one behind.

Our Bicycle Initiative is a crucial component of our "purposeful buying" campaign; when someone buys a bike from us they can be confident that they are contributing to something much bigger any of us.

This programme is about much more than dancing and winning awards: lessons in dance become lessons in life.
