Leeds Bike Mill is a community bike recycling and training co-op. It was born out of discussions about the need for a bicycle recycling project in the Leeds area and the need for affordable second-hand bikes. Most other major cities run a similar recycling scheme.
We service bikes that have been discarded or donated; diverting them from landfill and saving energy and resources compared to new bikes. We want to provide people with affordable transport, as well as the opportunity to improve physical and emotional health and well being through regular cycling.
With thanks to ERDF funding and Leeds Community Foundation support to help start up, Leeds Bike Mill has been providing affordable transport for 4 years.
We are always looking for more bicycles for the training and recycling elements of the project. If you have a bike that is no longer used or wanted, it would be of great use to the project!
We are based in the same building as another great organisation, the Pedallers’ Arms. They are a bike workshop open to the public three evenings a week, where you can repair your bicycle with help, if needed, from the volunteer mechanics.
If you are interested in donating a bicycle or parts then please see our Donate page.
