Charity Spotlight: ReCycle Bikes

Trade-In is back for 2018 and there are many good reasons why it’s our favourite campaign: It’s springtime and everyone is getting back into the spirit of cycling, customers can save on a shiny new bike while decluttering their sheds or garages at the same time, and, best of all, each and every donated bike serves a good cause! Proud to be working with 18 social enterprises across the UK, here we put the spotlight on different partner charities throughout the campaign. Next up, Sheffield-based ReCycle Bikes..

How Evans Cycles Trade-In benefits ReCycle Bikes

We receive all of the bikes from our local store which is just down the road. I’ts hard for us to publicise ourselves as we are only a small project with limited funds for marketing and we aren’t able to collect individual bikes from people’s homes so having Evans Cycles collect bikes on our behalf is a big help to us.

Future projects/ambitions

We’re looking into setting up a project working with long-term unemployed adults suffering from depression.

I have a titanium Genesis Equilibrium from 2015; it originally cost £2000 and I’m interested in moving over to carbon, in particular a BMC.
What kind of cost reduction could I expect? I wouldn’t be interested if I was given £100 for my old bike which is worth a lot more! Thank you.
Regards,
Joe
