Techbuyer Is Pedalling Reuse with Bike made out of IT Parts to Celebrate the UCI – The Yorkshire Times

Charlie Collett, Content Writer Sep 24, 2019

As Harrogate celebrates the UCI Road World Cycling Championships this week, Techbuyer’s IT bike sculpture has caught the attention of the local press. As the ‘Voice of the North’, The Yorkshire Times delivers the latest news, information about events, sports and more across the county. This article was published on 19th September 2019.

Article summary:

  • The bike sculpture highlights the value in redundant IT hardware, a hot topic at the moment given the meteoric rise of e-waste worldwide.
  • It took local sculpturist, Steve Blaylock, 100 hours to create and required almost 1,000 IT parts.
  • Over 80% of Techbuyer employees have a Harrogate postcode and will be joining their local community throughout the week to cheer on the cyclists.
