The Bristol Bike Project

Donate a Bike

Donate your bike and we'll refurbish and rehome it!

Please note: We have moved to our new home at 198-200 Stapleton Road, Easton, Bristol BS5 0NY.

Donate your old bicycle

Please email a couple of clear photos of the bike you’d like to donate to so we can let you know if we are able to accept it or not. We are lucky to have so many donations that we can’t keep up, and so need to accept only the bikes we are able to process and use quickly.

If your donation fits the bill, please bring it to The Bristol Bike Project during our opening hours. Please never leave bikes or parts outside our premises when we’re not open to accept them! It isn’t fair on our neighbours and we may not be able to repurpose them which means we will have to use our time and resources to dispose of them. If you think your bike is beyond reasonable repair then please take it to the tip.

Bikes donated will be refurbished and either given away as part of our Earn-a-Bike programmes or sold to raise much needed funds for our community workshops.

If we can’t salvage your bicycle, we will always strip them for any usable parts which will then be used on other bikes. Any worn out, damaged or otherwise unusable parts will be passed on to one of our partner organisations for reuse, upcycling or recycling.

Please note:

  • Unfortunately we cannot collect bicycles from you. We don’t have transport!
  • We are unable to offer anything for your donation, either by way of a payment, exchange or part exchange.
  • We cannot accept donations of scooters, skateboards or pushchairs.
  • We no longer take donations of children’s bikes! Please take these to our friends at the APE project.

“Soooooo great here. Volunteers are knowledgeable, patient and wonderful. Friday kids drop in is legendary. Keeping this part of Bristol's bikes moving. Please donate any unwanted bikes here. They go to the needy not the greedy” Jeff
