Our Impact

Re-Cycle has been sending bikes to Africa for 25 years and has sent over 145,000 bikes and hundreds of thousands of spare parts.

All the bikes and parts that we receive are donated by the generous UK public. Every single bike that is received into our warehouse is checked and if suitable for Africa, prepped and loaded onto a shipping container and sent to one of our partners.
