We exist to help reduce reoffending through training and skills development. Our work benefits individuals, communities and the environment.

Refurbished bikes and wheelchairs

Refurbished bikes and wheelchairs are donated, via partner organisations, to people in need in the UK and overseas. A proportion of the bikes are sold through community bikerys or via the online shop to raise funds for the charity.

Fundraiser Touring European Stone Age sites, by MCF bike!

I have been riding MCF refurbished street bikes for several years. I love the fact that the restoration of the 80s vintage cycles I am interested in has given offenders the chance to gain useful and transferable skills which they can use when they complete their sentences. The MCF concept of recycling bikes which may otherwise end as waste whilst simultaneously training interested people is my main reason for my support...plus some of the bikes MCF refit are beautiful!
