Re-Cycle is a UK based charity that has realised that simple, affordable transport in developing countries can not only help generate income opportunities, but save people time and back-breaking work.

Many people in the UK discard old bikes rather than fixing them. By sending these bikes to Africa, Re-Cycle puts then to good use, benefiting those who donate their old bike, distributors, the recipients themselves and of course, the environment.
