We recycle bikes and relocate them in the community for those in need.
New Forest Bike Project
New Forest Bike Project (NFBP) is a social enterprise – a registered Community Interest Company (CIC, number 10327640) which takes in unwanted bicycles and then repairs, restores and relocates them. We aim to help people from all walks of life get out on two wheels and for it to be an inclusive and fun experience. DON’T dump it, recycle your old bike! If you are in need of a refurbished bike – we take referrals, speak to us. Scroll down further to contact us or click on the menu icon top right to find out more.
Please note – yes we do bike fixes and are a bit like a breakers yard for used bike parts if you need something more affordable & be shown how to fix/adjust stuff yourself etc BUT we’re NOT a retail shop selling new bikes & new parts and don’t get involved in warranty work on your new steed, if you need this take it back to where you bought it or there’s plenty of good main dealer shops who sell new stuff in our area – try our friends at: 99bikes/Hargroves (Totton), Boost Bike Hub (Brockenhurst), New Forest Cycling (Burley), Woods Cyclery (Lyndhurst), Forge Cycleworks (Ringwood) or Primera (Bournemouth).
We are a small operation helped by volunteers so don’t have set opening hours – best make an appointment if you want to see us. Please also don’t leave donations outside the workshop if we are not there, they tend to go walkies. Just let us know first to arrange a time before making a trip. Thanks again!
OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, we’re normally about at the workshop Tuesday-Friday 10am-3pm or briefly Saturday mornings but please check first. We are still doing pick-ups & deliveries in the van but only staying very local at the moment as things are so bonkers busy at the workshop we’re just not getting much time to escape plus the cost of fuel means we have to justify using the van more. Late August/early September we try & get some leave in so do ALWAYS CHECK before making a journey to see us.
We are doing FREE Dr Bike ‘fix & learn’ sessions on Wednesdays 10am-2pm on these dates: August 16th, 23rd, 30th & September 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th. Contact us to book a 1/2hr slot to stay & learn simple fixes & adjustments on your bike! Thanks Cycling UK for the support!
