Donate A Bike - Bristol

Give your old bike a new lease of life

If you have a bike that's gathering cobwebs in your garage, shed or attic please give it a new lease of life by donating it to Bike Back Bristol.  Your bike will then be repaired and serviced by prisoners at HMP Bristol under the guidance of our trained mechanics, and returned to the community through our bike sales giving someone else a chance to enjoy cycling.

We'd be especially grateful for more ladies bikes. We are also always in need of donations of clean rags, towels or old clothes for use in our workshop. 

Working bike locks wanted!

Being a refugee can mean being constantly cold, damp, tired and, in many cases, injured too. Because of this, bikes are needed in Calais and Dunkirk, as it's a long way to town and even further to hospital and other vital facilities. We are looking for working locks of any description (so long as you can supply a key) to go out with bikes we are donating to refugees.

Please drop your unwanted bikes off at:

The CREATE Centre, Smeaton Road, Bristol, BS1 6XN

Opening hours: 8:30am - 5pm, Monday - Friday. Closed at weekends.

Can't Make it to Create?

We can accept donations of unwanted bikes at Horfield Prison (Cambridge Road, Bristol, BS7 8PS) on Tuesdays or Thursdays, between 9am-5pm.

Drop bikes off at the RID Store Building: enter the prison car park, turn hard right, walk through the big metal gates and through the plastic flaps until you see the Life Cycle sign on your right. Feel free to call ahead, tel: 0117 372 3326
