"Our Purpose is to enrich mind, body, earth or soul with the freedom of riding"
Powered by Renewables
Our goal is to have all our buildings 100% run by renewable energy, decreasing our carbon emissions and playing our part in reducing climate change.
40 of our stores currently have solar panels installed reducing our electricity use and decreasing our carbon emissions. For 2022, we are also installing solar batteries, to store excess energy for peak periods, further reducing our electricity usage.
Our goal is to reduce our general waste by 50% by 2027, with product sourcing including sustainability, reducing the use of plastics, non-recyclable materials and a recycling culture.
Tyre and Tube Recycling
Our stores in QLD, ACT, VIC and WA all recycle tyres and tubes. This helps reduce landfill and the rubber is re-used to create products like athletics tracks and kids playgrounds.
Paper and Cardboard
All our stores have paper and cardboard recycling bins, that reduces future energy needs, avoids landfill and helps conserve our limited natural resources like trees.
All warehouses using paper tape that can be recycled, we have eliminated plastic bubble wrap and using recyclable fill material for online deliveries.
Our Pedal Bike packaging has now been changed to 95% recyclable materials.
