The Avaris eBike brand was established in 2020, however from the start, one of the visions of the Avaris brand, was helping charities and individuals suffering with illness or injury with our Free Ride to Recovery initiative. Whereby we would offer refurbished bikes to people who are struggling and would really benefit from the bikes.
The Initiative was set up by founder Richard Heys, with the aim of making a positive impact on the lives of those with injuries, illnesses and other conditions.
The company is refurbishing eBikes which are returned with minor impairments, for example if they have been damaged due to delivery and is donating them to people or groups who would benefit from their use.
Founder Richard Heys said:
“We cannot sell returned bikes as new, even if they have been completely refurbished by our trained technicians and are as good as new. We knew it would be such a waste if they weren’t put to good use, so we have decided to help people in need.
“The project is still in its early stages, but we’ve had fantastic feedback so far. Many people living with health limitations are unable to use traditional bikes, or take part in other forms of exercise but cycling with pedal assisted power allows them to ride at their own pace and can aid in physical as well as mental recovery”
If you feel you, someone you know, or a charitable association or initiative would really benefit from an Avaris Electric Bike, please get in touch and we’ll see if we can help.
