Donate a Bike

As Scotland's largest bike recycling charity, we take any and all unwanted bikes, no matter their age or condition.  

Every bike we get helps support our work promoting cycling, providing training and offering volunteering and other opportunities.  By selling secondhand bikes it also helps individuals who may not have otherwise afforded a bike the opportunity to get cycling.

We also take any unwanted parts and accessories, such as old locks (with a key/combination!), lights, bike panniers, trailers, etc. The only things we cannot take are old bike helmets.

As our van drivers operate on a volunteer basis, it is always preferable if you can bring your donations to your local Bike Station, but if you can't manage this please use the form below to donate a bike to us.

What Happens to My Donation?

Our aim is to re-use as many bicycles as we can, giving them a new lease of life. We have a team of qualified mechanics who are all specialists in refurbishing all the many different types of bicycle.  

We sell many of the bikes that we refurbish which helps support our work promoting cycling, and we also often provide bicycles to other organisations, charities, youth groups etc to encourage others to cycle, usually in conjunction with cycle training.

Some bikes that we receive are beyond refurbishment - these bikes often have some reusable parts so we strip them of any useable parts to reuse on other bikes.  The rest of the bike is then sent for scrap metal recycling.  The only part of a bike we can't recycle are the tyres, but we're always looking for ways to use them!
