Our social impact

Our mission is to make biking accessible to all children/youth – no matter what their circumstances. We believe all children should have the opportunity to own a bike and experience the freedom and independence of biking to school. Our goal is to help encourage healthy, fun outdoor activities. 

 what are the benefits of biking?

  • It's a simple fun outdoor activity

  • Helps improve self-confidence

  • Developing strength, balance, and overall fitness.

  • Improves positive, mental wellbeing

  • Strengthening the heart, lungs, and lower-body muscles and bones.

  • Helps reduce stress and anxiety

  • Low impact exerise to help maintain healthy weight

  • Transport and independence

To be fit and healthy you need to be physically active. Regular physical activity can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, mental illness, diabetes. Riding your bicycle regularly is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of health problems associated with an inactive lifestyle.

Cycling is a healthy, low-impact exercise that can be enjoyed by all ages, from young children/youth to older adults. It is also fun,  recycled bikes are good for the environment.
 

Obesity and weight control

Cycling is a good way to control or reduce weight, as it raises your metabolic rate, builds strong muscles and helps burn body fat.  Cycling is a comfortable form of exercise. 
 

Diabetes and cycling

The rate of type 2 diabetes is increasing and is a serious public health concern. Lack of physical activity is thought to be a major reason why children/youth can develop this condition. Research has found that Cycling for 30 minutes a day can help lower the risk of developing diabetes
 

Mental illness and cycling

Mental health conditions such as depression, stress and anxiety can be reduced by regular bike riding. This is due to the effects of the exercise itself and because of the enjoyment that riding a bike can bring.

How can you help and become involved ?

Donate a bike to be recycled or a bike 

Don’t throw away your old bikes! Donate your old bikes to us where we will send them to the recycle team getting them fit for a new owner to ride and enjoy. It doesn’t matter what kind of bike it is, how old it is or what condition its in, we want it. If we can’t refurbish the whole bike there will certainly be parts from it that we can take and use on another bike.

All donations are welcome and go back into the Brighter Rainbows Swap a Bike Project.
