Donate your bike

Leaving University? Skipping town? Or simply have an old bike you dont use anymore? Donate your bike to us at Transition and we’ll make sure it gets passed on to people who need it.

If you need any more persuasion here are some great reasons to donate your bike:

Great for the environment – by donating your bike and allowing us to reuse it you help us save on the production and shipping emissions associated with manufacturing and distributing new bikes

Support your community – you help everyone who rents your old bike enjoy all the benefits of cycling!

Reduce waste – if you abandon your bike, chances are it’ll be un-usable by the time we get to it!

Reduce clutter and free space – keep bike parking areas tidy and free for other people to use

Give your old bike what it deserves – you’ve likely enjoyed many years on your bike, send it on to a new home and allow others to enjoy it as you have

Support Transition – as a not-for-profit we rely on your generosity to keep providing our services at a low cost
