Reuse, Recycle
Don't put that old bike in the landfill. If you can't find a good home for it, we can help. If its beyond repair, we'll find a place to recycle it. And if your ebike or Li-Ion battery reaches the end of its life, we'll find the best way to recycle it - new programs are popping up all the time.  
eBikes Part Of Sydney Sustainable Transport Plan
As Sydney, Australia grapples with the challenge of improving the sustainability of its transport system, it is also faced with the additional challenge of catering to the mobility needs of an ageing population and baby boomers, many of whom are heavily reliant on cars.

The electric bicycle plays a vital role in resolving this issue, with their power assist technology, giving older people or those who are less fit the opportunity to use this eco friendly option, whilst getting the additional power assistance when required. You can choose whether to pedal normally or to use the motor to make it easier, so it is a great way for people who are older, less fit, or have injuries to get into biking.
