Support The Bike Station
We started because we believe everyone should have the same opportunity to enjoy the freedom of 2-wheels.
We are still going because our impact is recognised and supported by our supporters, funders, partners, and volunteers who share our beliefs.
Please support us in any way you can.
Donate A Bike
We accept the good, bad, and even the ugly, any bikes or bike parts and accessories are acceptable. Just drop off at one of the following branches:
Edinburgh: 250 Causewayside, Edinburgh, EH9 1UU
Edinburgh: 473 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh, EH11 3AD
Perth: 284 High St, Perth PH1 5QS
Our mechanics evaluate each bike donated. Some bikes are refurbished, while others are used for parts. So, either way, your bike avoids the landfill and supports a sustainable circular economy.
Cash donations support our community operations through our partners in areas such as Autism Support, Womens Aid, Homelessness, Asylum Seekers, Underpaid Carers and many more.
£5 covers minor repair to ensure someones pedals turning.
£20 will contribute to equipment to ensure safety of a rider.
£60 will contribute to a complete bike to start someone on their journey.
Volunteer Your Time
The Bike Station has a team of around 30 volunteers – we could only fulfil our mission to help people get cycling and recycle bikes with their support.
If you or the people you work with are interested in volunteering with us, we have lots of ways for you to get involved.
