Welcome to R-evolution
Posted on 2nd May 2023 at 15:10
To celebrate the launch of our new blog page, we would like to take a moment to answer some of your questions about R-evolution.
Who Are We?
R-evolution is a charity based in the East Riding of Yorkshire, dedicated to keeping the community active and fighting climate change. We have been providing valuable services to the Humber and East Lincolnshire areas since 2014, and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon.
At R-evolution we like to keep ourselves busy with a whole host of projects. We reach out to different communities through programs such as our Community Cycle Hubs and Dr Bike services. We conduct hands-on training programs like our Normanby Hall horticulture workshops. We sell refurbished, recycled bicycles at our busy retail locations such as our Trinity Market store. In short, we’re always trying to find new and exciting ways to keep the community outdoors, on their feet and riding on their bikes.
We’re very proud of what we do at R-evolution, we want to make getting outdoors and getting active an option for everybody. This way we can do our part in making our communities happier, healthier and greener places.
What Does The Bike Project Include?
There are many parts to our Bike Project.
There’s our Community Cycle Hubs, service hubs which aim to make cycling services available and accessible to the local area. Our experienced mechanics travel back and forth between these hubs, giving free cycle servicing, repairs, and advice.
We also have our Bike Libraries. Picture your classic, community library, but with bikes instead of books. Then imagine that library traveling between different schools, businesses, and organisations, giving out free bike loans to help keep local people actively commuting – reducing congestion and emissions in built-up areas.
In the summer months we like to head to the seaside with All Ride, bringing with us a fleet of specially adapted bicycles. We spend the day lending these bicycles to those with disabilities and mobility issues so that they can enjoy a sunny ride down Bridlington Promenade – for free!
There’s also our Trinity Market Store, our Hull University Bike Hub, our Cottingham and Scunthorpe workshops, and much, much more!
How To Get Involved With R-evolution?
We work tirelessly at R-evolution, but that doesn’t mean we’re not massively appreciative of a helping hand. By donating a bicycle, accessing our service, or volunteering with us, you can help keep the R-evolution wheels turning.
