Got an old bike gathering dust (or rust) in your garage or taking up too much room in your tiny box flat? We’ve got the perfect solution to kill two birds with one stone: first it’ll get rid of your unused bike sitting resentfully in the corner and judging you, and second it’ll help someone in need get around London.

Every year thousands of refugees and asylum seekers arrive in London. Often they arrive with nothing and rely on charities to feed, clothe and shelter them. This is a city with great opportunities, but let’s face it – it’s not exactly easy living here, and transport fares really add up.

So here’s where you and your bike come in. You bring your bike to us, and after a tearful goodbye we’ll send it off to its new life with a refugee or asylum seeker via the Bike Project. It’ll get a new lease of life helping the less fortunate, and you’ll get the warm glowy feeling of having done a good deed. Win-win.

If you’ve got a bike you’d like to donate just let us know and we’ll arrange a time for you to drop it off.
