Good stuff Image

Local social enterprise Good Cycles was recognised as Melbourne’s best new business at the 2013 Business 3000+ Awards last month.

The awards, which celebrate the achievements of small and medium-sized businesses within the City of Melbourne, were held last month at Waterfront Venues in Docklands and recognised a range of different businesses.

Good Cycles is a not-for-profit enterprise which offers mobile bike maintenance while, at the same time, providing support and opportunities for people experiencing disadvantage.

The organisation, founded by Luke Wright and Loretta Curtin, opened a workshop on the ground floor of Places Victoria’s Goods Shed North office earlier this year after signing a peppercorn lease.

Mr Wright said winning the new business award meant a lot to the organisation.

“For us, it’s recognition of all the hard work that’s gone into the start-up process, and it strengthens our belief that the concept of mobile bike mechanics – the bike shop that comes to you – is popular and much needed in Melbourne,” Mr Wright said.
