We need your bikes!
The Bike Project relies heavily on bicycle donations to keep running successfully.
Who can donate?
We welcome donations from individuals with unwanted two-wheelers, Housing Associations or public buildings that may have abandoned bikes, bike shops who need to get rid of bikes, universities left with rejected bikes at the end of the academic year… it’s simple to donate!
What bikes can we accept?
We take all bikes in any size or condition.
Where to donate
You can donate your bike at any of the London Bike Hubs in the map below. Please check the details carefully, as drop-off points may have limited opening hours and require you to contact them a little in advance. Regrettably, we are unable to collect individual donations, but for bulk donations of 10+ bikes within Greater London, please get in touch and we will arrange a van to pick them up.
We also have a drop-off point in Grandpont, Oxford. Please contact us for further instructions on how to drop off a bike in Oxford.
If you live outside of London or Oxford, we can help put you in touch with an organisation closer to you. We’re always looking for new drop-off points; please get in touch if you think you might be able to help.
Some quick checks…
Please check whether any bikes you donate are registered with bikeregister.com, as we cannot donate bikes which are still registered to other owners. This check takes less than one minute; you will need the frame number, which is usually located underneath the bottom bracket (where the pedals attach to the frame). If you have registered your bike, please log in to your bike register account and transfer the ownership to firstname.lastname@example.org before you donate it. Thank you!
A small proportion of the bikes that we receive are sold through The Bike Shop to generate funds, the proceeds of which support The Bike Project, which ensures our long-term sustainability. We therefore ask that you fill out a gift aid form when you donate, to allow us to claim back 25p for every £1. You can download the form here and hand it in when you donate, or email it over.
