Description

The Bike Station is a community project that accepts donated bikes from members of the public and recycles them.

We have everything you need to get and keep you cycling.

We recycle donated bikes, sell them at affordable prices, and then use the proceeds to help people across Scotland get cycling.

We have a Bike Station in Edinburgh and Perth. At each Bike Station we provide a range of services for employers to promote cycling and sustainable transport. We work with voluntary organisations, schools and youth groups providing everything from cycle training, guided bike rides, fleets of bicycles, training, events and more.

For the individual, all three Bike Stations sell fully-reconditioned bicycles, all with a three-month warranty at affordable prices. Keep your own bike on the road at our Fix Your Own Bike sessions or get your bike serviced by one of our mechanics. Learn bike maintenance at our training classes, or confident cycling with one of our cycling tutors.

Got an old bicycle?

We are Scotland's largest bicycle-recycling organisation, taking in nearly 10,000 old and discarded bikes every year. Every bike donated supports our work promoting cycling.
