Who are we?

Back2Bikes is a social enterprise, providing bicycle training, repair and recycling services for the local community. We are run by volunteers, and are supported by Port Phillip Council. We are filling a need for bike training and recycling where there are currently very few offerings. Bicycle usage is increasing dramatically, more people are using them for daily transport, and the government is spending money on bike infrastructure. Port Phillip’s Department of Sustainable Transport is a strong supporter of Back2Bikes.

Not For Profit

We are not in competition with local bike shops. We don’t have the full range of parts and service options, and we generally can’t do same day servicing. But we are offering training and volunteering.


We don’t sell new bikes, apart from some special needs bikes, which local bike shops don’t usually offer, as they are too low volume for them. But we are recycling old bikes.

Our mission

We are incorporated as an Australian company, limited by Guarantee. This means that any profit we make is reinvested back into the business, and we don’t pay tax on it. There are no directors fees or profit distributions.

We charge for services, but at a level below normal bike shops. We will provide free bikes to other charitable organisations, and bikes/servicing at further reduced pricing to health care card holders.
