Our 2023 Bike and Scooter Muster saw over 200 wheelie items rounded up. So many we could barely fit them all in our storage facility!

The Pit Stop crew, students and volunteers have all been working hard to get these bikes and scooters restored and refurbished and Lighthouse staff have been busy delivering the 200+ wheelie items to their new home for a second spin!

A bike or scooter can provide independence, transport, exercise and the fun that comes with being out and about. Additionally the young people who work on the donated items at our Pit Stop program have the opportunity to learn a new skill and experience the joy of giving back to community.

We are delighted to say our Bike and Scooter Muster has been a huge success and we thank community members who have donated the bikes along with everyone involved in the restoration process. A big thanks also goes to Southern Cross Austereo for their assistance with the Bike and Scooter Muster campaign. Thanks also to My Ride and Leading Edge for providing drop-off points for those donating bikes.

Bikes and scooters donated by community

The 2023 Bike and Scooter muster saw our community donate over 200 bikes and scooters. Note: Not all bikes were able to be restored as they are beyond repair. Retired bikes may be used for parts or cut up for scrap metal.

Bikes and scooters restored by Pit Stop participants

200 donated wheelie items have been restored as part of our Pit Stop program.  Pit Stop provides young people from local primary and secondary schools the opportunity to learn  develop trade skills. Volunteers from a local Rotary Club also worked on the bikes.

Bikes and scooters gifted to community

200 restored items have been gifted to community members. For some recipients. a bikes provides the opportunity for outdoor play or exercise. For others a bike can provide transport to school and work. Some bikes have been gifted to recently arrived refugees or immigrants.
