More Space Please!

Written on: 22 Aug 2017
Author: Anna Chapman

The Bike Project is looking for more space! Ideally a warehouse and an office within London.

Please contact directly if you know of anywhere which fits the brief below. Please give the brief a careful read before contacting us as whilst we are very grateful for any leads, we are a small and busy team and ideally want to prioritise our time with those that best match our needs.


The main space will be used to check the bikes in, assess and repair them, and redistribute them. We will also use some of the property as an office.

What we’re looking for:

  • 2000 – 3000sq ft, with a ceiling height of at least 9ft
  • Clear, open space
  • Minimum 6 month lease
  • Space for small office
  • Toilet facilities
  • Within M25
  • With transit van access/ parking for unloading and loading
  • Good overground/ train links
  • Ideally with some outside space/ access to quiet roads for road-testing bikes
  • Secure (although our best bikes will be stored elsewhere)

We know that this is very specific therefore we will consider properties slightly outside of this brief. We will also consider making renovations to adapt the property to our needs.

We are a charity and our budget is limited but we are prepared to consider reasonable commercial rent prices.

We are ready to move.

More about The Bike Project:

Our mission is simple: to get refugees cycling!

We are a community of refugees, mechanics and volunteers. We receive donations of second- hand bikes, fix them together at our workshop, and then donate them to asylum seeking refugees. 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.
