Cycle Sense





With our:

Repair service


Repair Training



Cycle Sense makes it easier for people to cycle by sharing the many benefits of bikes from our reuse centre, where we carry out a range of activities from cycle training to advocacy, eco delivery, upcycling and upskilling. 

We sell affordable secondhand bikes, paint and provide cycle trainers, bike maintenance, community cycle bus and training and upskilling opportunities. We divert paint from disposal & incineration to provide affordable good quality paint for reuse in the community through unique collaboration between Cork City and County Council. In addition to helping the environment, this has a positive economic impact through job creation and reduced costs for the community groups and individuals who use the paint.
