All our bikes are donated – Thank You 💞

Donate a bike for a refugee or asylum seeker and help New Scots access essential health services, college/university, volunteer and work opportunities, and to meet new people and make new friends.

As well as bikes we also welcome bike accessories – locks, lights, cycle racks, panniers, pumps, bike tools, cycle clothes & waterproofs, and (new) helmets are all welcome thank you!

All our bikes are given a clean bill of health in our workshops and given free to refugees and asylum seekers. We sell the occasional value bike to reinvest back into the project to pay for essential repairs and accessories, and to secure our long-term future. If you would prefer that we did not sell your bike please do let us know.

Donate your bike

Check the condition of your bike. We have limited resources and volunteer time for major repairs. The better the condition the bike the better. If in doubt give us a shout (bikes that have lay outside and are rusted up are probably not for us). Attach a label to your bike marked ‘fao BfR’.
