Story

We’re challenging you to cycle 40, 200 or 400 miles in 30 days.

Help us raise funds so we can continue to send bicycles to Africa and change lives.

Every time we send a container to our partners in Africa we fill it with around 500 bicycles, spare parts, and tools. It costs £32 to send each bicycle to Africa.

This summer we are asking for your support. Help us raise funds so we can continue to send bicycles to Africa, and change lives.

For many African people a bicycle is their only mode of transport and our bicycles have been a lifeline for many people, especially during the global pandemic. A bicycle can be used to carry passengers and heavy loads, giving families the extra time to earn, learn and enjoy life.

About the charity

Re-Cycle (Bikes to Africa)

Verified by JustGiving

RCN 1063570
We collect used bicycles in the UK and we ship them, in containers, to people who need them in Africa. Some people living in rural African communities walk miles everyday to reach water, school, work or healthcare. Bikes are a sustainable mode of transport and help change lives for many families.
