UpCycles

Overview

UpCycles is a bicycle maintenance hub, youth group space, adjoining the overflow maintenance space.

Here we will collect discarded bicycles, and unwanted bicycle parts provided by local bike shops. We will 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 will be reinvested into purchasing essential tools and parts to continue the program.

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.

The provision of a well equipped repair cafe workshop space enables opportunities for the rise of small businesses.
