Good Cycles is a social enterprise. Their mission is to use bicycles to create meaningful & lasting opportunities for people & communities in need. They run a business that caters to the needs of Melbourne’s commuter cyclists, providing them with super convenient bicycle services right across Melbourne. The profits from this help to fund important community work as a registered charity, such as training disadvantaged groups of people to become bike mechanics, and train refugees to cycle in the city.

They worked with RHoK at the Melbourne 2014 Summer Hackathon to develop a 'frequent flyers' style app to encourage more people to come into their workshops. They managed to develop a working prototype. Unfortunately the app hasn't moved out of the development stage yet.
