Donate Bike or Cycling Kit

We welcome donations of unused bikes and associated equipment from the public.  Bradford Bikery will fix it up and put it to good use – either selling it on at an affordable price and putting the money into a worthwhile charitable project or passing it on to one of our volunteers.  The broad aim is simply to get as many people as possible riding a bike!

Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic we’re working on a special free bike loans scheme for NHS and other key workers. Donated bikes that don’t need a lot of repair are really helpful for this.

Please fill out this form about the bike you wish to donate. If you need to speak to somebody first, you can call Anthony 07541093660 or email

We can collect or you can drop the bike off at Capital of Cycling, Hall Ings BD1 5SD.

Although we don’t like to look a gift horse in the mouth, we don’t want completely knackered bikes that are beyond repair/rusted solid (unless they are antiques of some kind).  We’d like to help fix up all bikes but it’s not effective for us to spend a long time fixing a very broken bike that wouldn’t be worth the hours and spare parts needed to get it up and running.

If you have a bike or kit to drop off and are making a special trip, it’s a good idea to e-mail in advance to let us know you’re coming. 

If dropping off with a vehicle there is a space for you to pull in – a small driveway just at the front of Capital of Cycling, past the meter parking and entrance to NCP car park.

Financial donations are of course also welcome to support our work and you can donate via the button below.

  • Hi there,
    I have some cycling clothing I would like to donate; can I post it? If so where is your address?. Thanks

  • Hi are you still accepting donations of used cycling clothing?

  • Hi, Are you opened. I got a bike for someone who was going to get rid of it. I saved it from going to the tip. Can I bring it in to get some repairs done please for my daughter.

    • I’m afraid we’re not open for repairs just yet. We’ll be posting updates online but we have a small staff and rely on volunteers so our primary concern is their safety. We are not a commercial repair shop. Halfords is open as are other local bike shops you could Google.

  • Hi,
    I am part of the team that run a cycle clothing company. What is your capacity for donated used bike clothing?

    • Hi Dave,

      We’re always pleased to receive donations of most cycling related items including clothing. We’ll always either use them for worthy projects or pass them to someone who does. You can drop stuff at the address on the contact page, or drop us an e-mail. Thanks!

  • Hi Team
    We have recently formed a new cyclong club with over 40 members and a brand new kit. This means we are getting rid of our old design. Many which have barely been worn. Would you be interested in recieving this kit and I can arrange for it to be dropped off.

    Many thanks Sue Evans

    • Hi Sue – we’d be delighted to receive it and could pass it to a worthwhile cause.
      It can be dropped off or posted to Capital of Cycling, Hall Ings, BD1 5SD

  • Hi there,

    I have some cycling clothing and equipment to donate. I am based in the London area. Are you still taking postal donations.

    Best regards,
