Bikeworks is a social enterprise, legally this means we are a Community Interest Company (CIC). Bikeworks has no shareholders and is governed by our Non-Executive Directors who volunteer their time and commitment as Trustees.
All profits made as a result of our income generating activities are reinvested back into achieving our mission, including the provision of free-to-access inclusive community cycling activities.
Our Trustee Group meets minimum 4-times per year, attending an Organisational Development session once-a-year to review and set the strategy for the year ahead. The Board also establishes ‘task and finish’ groups for new business products and activities throughout the year, as required.
To facilitate good governance and harness the expertise of our Non-Executive Directors, the Board delegates authority to the Chairs of the Finance and Risk Sub Group, and the People and Governance Sub Group.
