COMMUNITY

Druid Cycles is a Community Interest Company (CIC) which is officially defined as “a new type of limited company designed specifically for those wishing to operate for the benefit of the community rather than for the benefit of the owners of the company. This means that a CIC cannot be formed or used solely for the personal gain of a particular person, or group of people” (CIC Regulator).

If you would like to know more about CICs here is a good overview from the Guardian: Community Interest Companies

Here are a few more of our community goals:

  • To bring back neighborly values by encouraging small businesses to work together and provide an exchange of services whenever possible in order to reduce environmental and monetary costs associated with transportation.
  • Helping people who do not have the funds to repair or purchase a bike to do so through voluntary work that highlights and improves their current skill-set
  • To be open to people from all backgrounds and work to equalize differences through cycling
  • To increase environmental awareness, by getting more people cycling, but also by educating them on how recycled and sustainable materials were use to repair their bike.
