Bike Rescue is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, which specialises in recycling bikes.
We love bicycles: Classic bikes, old bikes, pretty bikes, sporty bikes, fixie bikes, bikes with three wheels, bikes in bits, bikes galore...... we save bicycles from the jaws of the dragon of the dump, we give them the once over: then apply reconstructive surgery, or allocate them for organ donation so that their parts are used to save other bikes.
It is worthy and enjoyable work. Since 2006 when we began we have saved 4,500 bikes from becoming waste.
Bike Rescue is a Community Interest Company, this means that we trade as a social business for the community’s benefit and the Directors do not own the assets, these also belong to the community. We have 4 full time, 6 part time staff and about 15 volunteers. We have grown massively since we began in 2006 and now have 6 units at Parkside Commercial Centre.
