  • Increasing levels of bike use and ownership in and around Witney
  • Enabling disadvantaged people to participate in cycling and develop bike maintenance skills
  • Ensuring that the modal shift to active travel is enacted through all local policies and developments
  • Reducing the number of bikes going to landfill

They organise cycle training and run workshop sessions on building and maintaining bikes for groups,  organise activity and therapeutic bike rides and provide information and advice on most things bike.
