ReCycle Bikes

We recently won a Highly Commended prize for Social Responsibility at the 2013 EAUC Green Gown awards for our work with ReCycle Bikes – a wonderful Sheffield-based social enterprise. If you’ve visited the Arts Tower recently, then you’ve probably seen our Cycle Hut located in the car park, but you probably don’t realise it also has a great story.

Every year, USE runs an enterprising ideas competition. It’s an opportunity for students and alumni (up to five years from graduation) to get their ideas onto paper, tap into all the business advice services on offer at the Enterprise Zone… and maybe win some cash! This year, we had close to 80 plans submitted over three categories: 1. Commercial Concept; 2. Social Concept; and 3. Business Startup. Of those plans, external judges shortlisted nine finalists who would pitch at our Enterprise Celebration Dinner where the overall winners would receive their awards.

Business Startup – £2000 cash prize

Winner: Alex Gunn, Bike Rehab
