The Cycle Re-cycle Club (CRC, but affectionately known as “The Nunnery Bike Workshop”) is a community based group of enthusiastic bike minded people who gratefully receive pre-loved or abandoned bikes, parts and accessories to help you make a working bike to go back into the community. At present, we have only limited means to receive bikes outside our operating time, but give us a call and we might be able to pick up.
Their goals are to:
•assist disadvantaged people from the local and wider community to own a bicycle.
•maintain and increase the availability of bicycles.
•provide a social forum for exchange of ideas and experiences to enhance client knowledge.
Their volunteers work alongside people from the local community, sharing their mechanical knowledge and showing them how to use tools to recycle discarded and pre-loved bicycles and to repair and maintain them afterwards. All aimed at increasing the use of bikes in and around Sydney.
