Recycling donated bikes to raise money for charity.
We are a volunteer run organisation, started in autumn 2014 with the help of some Lottery funding. We now have a growing team and have been busy fixing up donated bikes. The bikes we sell go through a detailed safety check and are fixed up where repairs are needed to bring them to full working order ready for sale. You can see details of the charities we support with the proceeds we make here.
The bikes aren’t fully refurbished beyond essential repairs so we can sell them at reasonable prices. We have bikes ranging from toddler to adult size and we take donated bikes and spare parts in any condition – we don’t let anything go to waste!
Big Bike Revival 2017 is coming!
We are planning to repeat our Big Bike Revival events this year in May/June. Details will be coming soon – watch this space. We will be doing free bike checks, free basic adjustments and repairs plus training on puncture repairs and bike safety checks.
Where will you ride?
Cycling UK have created a useful tool that allows you to plot your route A to B with choice of quiet, balanced or quickest roads and detailed turn by turn images. Give it a try and let us know how well you think it works in our area!
Lots of bikes for sale
We have a few ‘ready to go’ bikes on the website and over lots of bikes waiting to be cleaned up. If you come and see one you like that isn’t ready we can usually have it ready to go in 1- 2 weeks. We have something for all ages. Please note – all the bikes you see in our yard are not yet ready for sale. Come inside to see the for-sale bikes or see them on our Bike List page on the website. We try and keep that up to date. There are also trikes and scooters that are ‘free to a good home’.
