We provide people in Africa with access to a quality used bicycle.​

We re-use quality used bicycles from the UK to provide access to income, education, wellbeing, and create long lasting improvement to livelihoods in Africa.

We provide our partners with the skills, tools and knowledge to repair and maintain bicycles, and support emerging bicycle-related economies in Africa. We mobilise African communities through sustainable transport and development.

Watch Our Warehouse Tour

We’ve created a video tour of our UK warehouse that walks you through our operations —from when we receive a donation to the time it’s ready to be shipped. 

This tour offers a glimpse into our daily operations, showcasing the dedication and hard work that goes into every shipment.
