Across the UK millions of bikes lie unused in sheds and garages whereas in some areas of Africa, a bike can be the only means of transport enabling people to travel to work, school and carry goods further afield.

However, bikes can be too expensive for the majority and additionally the skills to maintain them might not exist, which is where Re-Cycle comes in. Not only do they send unwanted bikes, they also teach local people how to maintain the bikes, helping to improve lives in a sustainable way.

Bike Trade-in Events

On specified dates Halfords holds national trade-in events giving you the opportunity to donate unwanted bikes for Re~Cycle at any of our retail stores. In addition the stores listed below will take bikes that are in a reasonable condition for Re~Cycle at any time.
