Some unique or unusual projects that we have been working on.

Vintage Gems Saved!

The motherload just landed at RAD

241kgs of vintage beauties – bikes, parts, tools, accessories.

Saved from being put to scrap metal death!

Thanks to Mike from Annex Metals for the call, it’s great to have found a metal recycler who’s willing to work with us to save amazing stuff from becoming waste.

So come grab yourself a piece of cycling history….these puppies won’t last long!




Upskilling RADders

Each month, RAD hosts an upskilling session for our volunteers.

Teaching is provided by the fantastic Dave Johnson, a professional bike mechanic and all round cycling hero.

These sessions upskill our crew to increase the quality of assistance we provide. (making us all more RAD!)

It’s one of the perks of being a RAD volunteer!
