The Bristol Bike Project


Looking for a decent bike that doesn’t cost the earth? Buy a fully refurbished bike from us and the money you spend will help others get out on two wheels!

***The Bristol Bike Project is now closed. Key workers in need of a bike or urgent repairs can email us on For more info, see here ***

Here’s how it works…

We sell fully refurbished second-hand bikes from as little as £150. All the bikes we sell have been donated to the Project and given a complete overhaul by our professional mechanics so they work like new.

Buying from us means saving another bicycle from the dreadful fate of landfill. Any profit we make will be reinvested in our community programmes which help people from across Bristol get out on two wheels.

We sell all kinds of bikes, including hybrids, mountain bikes and road bikes. All bikes come with a four week warranty and if you change your mind we’ll offer a full refund on any bikes returned to us within one week. Pop down during our opening hours to check out our full selection and take one out for a test spin!

We also have a range of frames, accessories and new and second-hand parts. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, we can usually order it for you!
