0% waste policy.

Why Bikes?

Most Africans lack access to any form of transport and spend hours every day walking to collect clean water, firewood or to reach school or work. Not only does this take a toll on their health and time spent working, it often means children miss school altogether.

Where We Work

We work with partners in Africa who unload the bikes and employ people to refurbish them locally. They then put them into Re-Cycle lead projects or they distribute them to people living in rural communities.

Bikes Drop off

We have almost 100 permanent drop off points nationwide. All you have to do is search for your nearest point and take your bike to the store.
