BIKES FOR SALE

The Urban Cycle Centre (UCC) is a sister company to the NCA. It is a non profit making social enterprise, a CIC. Primarily, the UCC is a group of volunteers and enthusiastic cyclists who generously give up their time to make the whole project a success.

Our main aim is to prevent or reduce the number of old or abandoned bikes from being disposed of via landfill sites, finding additional methods of re-using them in a much more positive way.

The bicycles we rescue and re-home are collected up in various ways:

  • In schools, as part of an educational scheme we have now established, working in partnership with GMWDA, RecycleGM & TfGM.
  • Private donations by individuals.
  • As part of a national ‘trade in’ scheme promoted by a several major cycle retailers.

Our team of technicians and volunteers first assess the condition of the bike, then our options include:

  • Re-building them for use within the community for cycle training and family rides.
  • Breaking them down to be used during maintenance courses.
  • Providing a source of transport to job seekers.
  • Innovative new design concepts for arts and music projects.

Preloved bike sales are organised fortnightly at our base in Radcliffe. The funds raised by these events help to keep the project running into the future.
