Donate a bike to Brake the Cycle

Donate your unwanted or broken bike

If you have an old, unwanted or broken bike and you don't know what to do with it, we can help.

We will arrange for the Brake the Cycle team to collect your bike for free and take it to one of our workshops. Contact us to arrange a collection

07778 001 446

We will come and take it off your hands, renovate it or strip it for parts and scrap metal. We will then give refurbished bikes for free to people who really need them.

Community Payback Orders

We work with offenders who have been given a Community Payback Order. Most of the people on these orders are young men under 25. Many of them are interested in bikes and cycling. Although none of the offenders are professional bike mechanics, the Council's criminal justice workers, who supervise them, have been trained to repair bikes.
