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. 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 2016
We had a great spring bank holiday Big Bike Revival event. We helped resurrect a few dozen bikes (including one that had been run over by a car!), 40 bikes were donated, 16 sold plus a few still on order for us to fix up. Thanks to the generous donors and to the great team of volunteers and cake bakers who made it possible!
New back yard
Our steep old back steps have been replaced and we now have access to another cellar for bike storage. Come and take a look and sample our tea and cake!
Lots of bikes for sale
We have a range of ‘ready to go’ bikes on the website and around 100 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.
