Bike recycling – How can you help?
Let us bring your old bikes back to life. We collect all old bikes free of charge.
We tidy up the bikes using unwanted spares. We sell the finished bikes at low prices to people on low incomes. We also provide work experience for young people who have been involved in crime or who are not in education or training.
How can you help the bike shop?
- Donate your old bikes
- Volunteers – we need people to work with young people or to help restore the bikes.
For details, contact us on 03381 393939 (ask for Jim).
