Bicycle Recycling Gosport’s makeover
New signage at the Bicycle Recycling Gosport shop emphasises the ‘life chances for young people’ that Bicycle Recycling provides every day. Whether it is through providing apprenticeships and work experience for local young people, delivering Bike Maintenance Clubs in schools and with those unemployed or full time courses in partnership with Highbury College, Bicycle Recycling is really proud to do what it says and deliver real life chances for young people.
Women only bike rides

These guided rides are for women only and offer a fun ride for all abilities along quiet roads and cycle ways, stopping for a cuppa on the way.
