The “Re-Cycling. Bike Reuse and Riding Fair’” project, financed by the Erasmus Sport Program, was intended to re-engage kids in sport after the pandemic crisis, to re-establish a healthy lifestyle through cycling, and, at the same time, to promote the circular economy in the biking sector. As symbol of green mobility, the bicycle is also a product with an ‘end-of-life’ stage and a concomitant risk of becoming non-recyclable waste, especially through childhood, when multiple purchases of bikes may be necessary as the child outgrows one bike after another. The “Re-Cycling” project has involved children, families, cycling instructors and coaches, and other relevant stakeholders, in a series of initiatives concerning green cycling, bicycle repairs, including do-it-yourself repairs, bike reuse, safe and responsible disposal. The main activities have been the hybrid Training Program and the Fairs held in North Macedonia, Austria, Italy, and France. A robust impact assessment and a final event in Brussels are planned in 2024 in line with the European cycling strategy, for the European year of cycling.


We are planning 5 community events during which children and families will gather to participate in bike rides, Do-It-Yourself repair workshops, “Revamp your bike” creative Labs and entertainment activities. 


An online educational program aimed at parents, cycling teachers and coaches to learn about: a more sustainable and circular biking industry; bike repairing; bike reuse and safe disposal. Educational materials for transferring knowledge to children and students are also provided.


A repository of  publications and documents concerning circular economy, sustainability, and inclusivity in the biking sector.
