Why Bikes?

When walking is your only option for getting about, life can be hard. People living in rural Africa often walk for miles each day to fetch water, or to get to school or work. A bike can change someone's life.



Ways you can make a difference

Our fundraisers have done some pretty amazing things to raise money for Re-Cycle. What will you do? Also visit our shop and help us continue our work.



We've sent over 100,000 bikes to Africa, but we're not done yet

Our Impact


We’ve helped increase school attendance by 30%


We've sent 109,000 bikes to Africa in the last 20 years


98% of bikes are still in operational after 3 years

When just getting somewhere can be a whole adventure!

In some parts of Africa it can take up to 4 hours to get to school, water or other necessities. We provide used bikes from the UK to people in rural Africa who need them and we teach them how to maintain them. 

Giving people more time to earn, learn and enjoy life.
