Working Together

Gloucestershire Bike Projects aims include reducing the number of salvageable bikes going to landfill or being melted down and lost from use and encouraging and empowering people to get out there on their bikes.

We work with a wide range of organisations and businesses each year to make this happen.

We are working with Gloucestershire Constabulary and the Police and Crime commissioner to re-home abandoned and recovered bikes. 

Evans Cycles runs a trade-in campaign and donates the bikes they get to our project. This is a great support as it means we can offer more free bikes to young people on our workshops.

Many local companies also promote our Donate a Bike message to their staff. A real help as we always need bikes.

Together with Think Travel we run our free bike loan scheme and offer bikes at affordable prices.

Wherever possible we work in partnership with other agencies and organisations to meet our aims. Over the last few years we have held a number of Doctor Bike events at companies and organisations around Gloucestershire. Together with the Gloucestershire Local Sustainable Transport initiative Thinktravel we have staged a series of Bike Hubs. These hubs were funded by the Department for Transport and were supported by Gloucestershire County Council. Each event offers free bike safety checks and tune ups as well as offering free bike security coding using Bike Register. Together, Thinktravel and Gloucestershire Bike Project have got thousands of bikes running more safely and smoothly over the past year and helped to encourage people to think about using more sustainable (and more convenient and affordable) means of getting around.

We still do some public events, keep an eye on our facebook page for details.

Companies and organisations can book us to come to their sites and service staffs bikes. For prices, get in touch on 01452 690979 or info@gloucestershirebikeproject.co.uk

Many many bikes end up being taken to teh county's tips, and a lot of those bikes can be brought back to use with a bit of TLC.

Ideally people would think of donating their unwanted bikes to us before taking them to the recycling centres, but not everyone knows that they can do that. We are trying to spread that message and any help with this is greatly appreciated.
