Roughly 1-2% of the bikes donated to Re-Cycle are unsuitable for Africa. These may not be suitable for the terrain (such as thin framed racing bikes) or they may be bikes with parts that are not readily available in Africa or need special tools to repair.

Instead of recycling these bikes, we sell them at our warehouse in Colchester and at the University of Essex generating income that helps cover our charity's costs. These bikes are sold at affordable prices and some are ex display bikes which haven't been used!

We hold a bike sales on the last Saturday of most month.  Please see below list of the months these take place.

Here you'll find a choice of new and refurbished bikes including Specialized, Pashley, Boardman, Raleigh and Carerra as well as a good selection of children’s bikes. We will be operating on a first come first served basis, so please come  early if you want to grab yourself a bargain. 

Cash or card payments accepted.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT REGRETFULLY DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 SITUATION WE ARE NO LONGER OPEN FOR BIKE SALES AND BIKE DONATIONS. THIS ALSO INCLUDES OUR END OF MONTH SATURDAY SALES.

WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME AND WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE ARE UP AND RUNNING AGAIN.
