New Forest Bike Project

New Forest Bike Project (NFBP) is a social enterprise and 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! Scroll down further to contact us or click on the menu icon top right to find out more.

We are NOT a retail shop selling new bikes and new parts and don’t get involved in warranty/manufacturers servicing type work, if you need this there’s plenty of good shops in our area – try our friends at: 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 need 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!

PLEASE NOTE:

Although restrictions have been lifted with the current COVID-19 situation, we are sticking to opening BY APPOINTMENT ONLY & following government safe guidelines for the foreseeable future. We are still doing pickups/deliveries in the van taking appropriate precautions but only staying very local at the moment as things are so bonkers busy at the workshop and we’re not getting much time to escape.

Also note: Next 2021 dates for the FREE #BigBikeRevival Dr Bike Tuesday 10am-2pm sessions at our place coming up:  September 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26 . Book in for a bike check up & learn how to do simple fixes yourself! Thanks to kind support from @WeAreCyclingUK

AND we do the work for the government backed ‘Fixyourbike’ voucher scheme. This is due to finish 31st October 2021 though so call or email us to book in asap.
