DONATE A BIKE
WHAT BIKES CAN BE DONATED?
We will take in any size or style of bicycle that you are willing to donate. We only have a few simple requests:
- Bike Size & Type - Any bike donated should have wheels over 24 inches in size (this is the diameter of the rim, excluding the tyre). The type and size of bike will then be carefully matched to to the needs of it's new owner. If you have smaller children's bikes, balance bikes or scooters that you'd like to donate, please contact your closest donation point to check they are able to take these donations in.
- Bike Condition -Please be sensible about the quality of any bike you bring to one of our hubs. Bikes need to be in a condition where they are able to be refurbished and can be made safe to ride (all be it with some time and a few spare parts). In some cases bikes may be used to donate parts to other bikes but ultimately we want to get as many complete bicycles given to new homes as we can, this won't be possible if our hubs have to pay to dispose of lots of bikes that are far beyond repair.
- Accessories -All bikes are rehomed with a range of accessories including locks, lights. If you have any accessories or spare parts we would also welcome these donations. Items could also include mudguards, pumps, child seats, bells, reflectors, bike bags etc. We can't accept donated helmets as we can not guarantee their safety but everyone receiving a bike is given a new helmet with their bike.

WHERE DO THE BIKES GO?
Once your bike has been fixed, serviced and is ready to ride again, it will be rehomed to someone in Lincolnshire who is currently in travel poverty. We are working with a number of partner organisations directly to ensure your bicycle is given to a local resident to whom it can make a real difference and open new opportunities for them in their daily lives. Each person will be matched with a bike, ensuring it is the right size and a suitable style for them.
