Donate a Bike

If you have an adult bicycle that's gathering cobwebs in your garage, shed or attic, please give it a new lease of life by donating it to Bike Back. 

Your bike will be repaired by prisoners whilst they train as qualified cycle mechanics, then returned to the community to enable someone else to get cycling.

We are grateful for every donation, but please do consider that we can only accept bikes that are in need of a service to get back on the road. We can't recycle/re-use heavily rusted, bent or broken parts/frames.
