- Do any charities want old bikes?
I have too many bikes because I buy new ones but never get rid of the old ones. Some have got to go but although the two I have in mind are old it would be a shame to take them to the tip. I don’t think they have any great value but must be worth something. Are there any charities that take bikes?
The bikes are a full suspension Marin Rift Zone from the mid 90s and a Giant Kronos road bike of (I think) similar vintage. Both work fine though the front suspension on the Marin may not be all it used to be thanks to old elastomers. I have newer, shinier things so they sit in the shed. Both better than a BSO from a catalog so maybe a charity could make a few £ out of them?
Anyone know of a charity that would take them off my hands & give me good Karma?Posted 8 years agonbtMember
There are a few around here

My Dad’s Rotary club organised a Sportive to raise money for the Killie Can Cycle charity who recycle bikes, some go to Africa, some stay in the UK.
