Cardiff Business Awards.

Brilliant to be recognised.

Last Friday evening we were delighted to receive the award for Best Social Enterprise at the Cardiff Business Awards 2018. It always feels great to be recognised and this was no exception. Of course we’d also like to congratulate all the other winners and finalists.

But what’s a social enterprise I hear you ask? Admittedly it’s a broad category, covering large scale organisations such as Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water to small – medium enterprises (SME’s) like ourselves. A common definition is a company whose profits are reinvested in the business for social, ethical or environmental purposes. We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to removing barriers to cycling. That could mean training children to cycle safely on the road, teaching people how to look after their own bike or selling affordable and reliable bikes to the public by reusing bikes destined for the waste stream. We are proud of the scope of our activities and also of the fact that we are able to make them commercially viable and are over the moon to be recognised.
