Donate a Bike


Your unwanted bicycles and parts keep us rolling! Bikes donated to the project will be refurbished and given away as part of our Earn-a-Bike scheme or sold to raise much needed funds. Depending on their condition, they may also end up being stripped down for all useful parts, with as much as possible being diverted from scrap.

We only require adult bikes.

We’ll take any style – mountain bike, hybrid, city bike, road bike, vintage etc. If you would also like to cover the cost of putting the bike through our Earn a Bike scheme, please donate £15 along with the bike. This is, of course, optional.

We also require old t-shirts and rags for cleaning bikes and we gratefull accept biscuits!

Kids Bikes (24″ wheels and smaller)

We’ve teamed up with the APE Project and their new kids bike library scheme based at The White Factory, 18 Netham Road, St George, Bristol, BS59PF. Please take any kids bikes directly to their workshop.  Tel: 07903 79833 Email:

Unfortunately we cannot currently collect bikes and we don’t cut abandoned bikes from railings.

We are open for bike donations Monday to Thursday between 9:00 – 18:00 and Friday between 10:00 and 18:00. We’re also open until 21:00 for evening workshops on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Address is 7 City Road, BS2 8TN

Support Our Work

Our Earn a Bike scheme receives no direct funding and we rely on the generosity of the public to keep it going. If you’d like to help us pay for rent, materials, locks and lights, you can either make a one-off payment, or become a Bike Project Supporter.
