Welcome to The Bike Project
The idea of the Guildford Bike Project is simple. We take in donations of unwanted bicycles from the general public and organisations and train volunteers, NEETs and Jobseekers to refurbish them while providing essential work experience. We sell the refurbished bikes to members of the local community for an affordable price, thus providing a sustainable and healthy transport option. The income from sales of the bikes sustains the project.
We sell and service bikes through our shop in Guildford.
We provide both informal and accredited training in cycle mechanics at our workshop in Guildford.
We run confidence-building, employability and life skills programmes with partner organisations at both our shops and workshops
What we can do for you:
Sell you a fully-guaranteed and refurbished bike
Service your bike using recycled parts as far as possible thus keeping the cost down
Provide work experience or skills training
What you can do for us:
Donate your unwanted bikes
Buy a bike or have your bike serviced and we will use the income to provide more training and work experience sessions
