Your donation of whatever you can manage will mean even more bikes donated to kids in need, in 2024


In remote Australian indigenous communities, kids usually have no or limited access to bikes, and the communities lack the infrastructure to maintain them. 


For that reason, Sienna and Guido of Revolve ReCYCLING recently embarked on an epic roadtrip from Sydney to some of the most remote corners of Australia and back again.


They returned to Sydney after 14 days on the road, 11,000km traveled and, most importantly, 111 quality secondhand and refurbished bikes and scooters delivered to kids in need.


That includes specially modified BMX bikes delivered to children across 7 remote indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.


They also delivered the tools required to service and maintain the bikes, and help facilitate workshops in bike maintenance and repair.


Revolve ReCYCLING's objective is to establish bike programs for kids in need based on the idea of "bike equity" - collecting bikes from where they are no longer needed or wanted, to children who do need and want them. These programs will be managed by local Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in partnership with services and schools working on education, employment, and self-determination.


Help us build our ‘bike equity’ program, and build the capacity to collect, restore and donate more bikes to kids in need – please donate now


Because every child deserves the joy of riding a bike!

Getting a bike changed my life. I had friends over for dinner to highlight the cause and raise the funds. Hopefully I can do the same again soon.
