Leeds Bike Mill is a community bike recycling and training co-op, established in 2014. 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. 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.
Leeds Bike Mill is run by three co-op members and made possible by a wider team of mechanics. We have many years experience in both bicycle recycling and teaching, and particularly enjoy passing on the empowering skills of bike maintenance to people who ride bikes through our courses and volunteer opportunities.
We are based in the same building as another great organisation, the Pedallers’ Arms, 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.
