We love the idea of Good Cycles – a Melbourne-based social enterprise/not for profit mobile bike service that fixes your bike while you’re at work, university or even at home.
Professional mechanics are teamed with trainees and together they take their cargo bikes around Melbourne and fix bikes. While they provide a service to you, dear bike rider, they also give training and employment to long-term unemployed and disadvantaged folks. It’s a win-win situation!
A standard service (the Good Standard) is $77 while The Good as Gold is a very thorough service for $170. You can also pick and choose what you’d like fixed which individually costs between $15 and $30.
Currently services occur on Mondays and Tuesdays and they’ll be adding Thursdays as demand increases.
