Most prison leavers never want to go back inside. They want to make a clean start making an honest living like most of us. But unlike most of us, they can’t get an honest job because most employers won’t give them one. So they go back to what they know and end up back where they started. Inside.
We started XO Bikes to give them that chance. Not just for training, jobs and support, but the chance to prove to the world (starting with the bike world) that they’re not all bad people. They’ve just made some bad choices, they’ve done their time. Not every sentence should be a life sentence.
