UpCycles

Overview

UpCycles Flyer

UpCycles is a bicycle maintenance and UpCycling hub, at ECOSS in Wesburn.
Here we collect discarded bicycles, and unwanted bicycle parts provided by local bike shops. We work with youth teams and other community members of all abilities to refurbish the bicycles for both charity and for sale at ECOSS. The proceeds of the sales of the bikes are reinvested into purchasing essential tools and parts to continue the program.

Providing a hub and community space for like minded people to gather to reduce landfill, whilst increasing connectedness, promoting fitness and positive mental health.

The program will provide pathways to employment in the growing bicycle industry in the Upper Yarra Valley. Providing a hub and community space for like minded people to gather to reduce landfill, whilst increasing connectedness, promoting fitness and positive mental health.
