Team of qualified
bike mechanics

Working in partnership with Otec Bikes, we are able to repair and service donated bicycles ready for a new home. 

“Our offer is simple really, to provide an exceptional level of service and repair. To be on hand to offer our experience and expertise when required to ensure your bicycle is taken care of”. 

Community bike maintenance

Donate a bicycle

In order to make this project work, we’re reliant on the local community donating unwanted bicycles they no longer need or want. If you have a bicycle(s) that has been in your shed for a while now and just collecting cob webs, we’d love to take it off your hands.

The more bicycles that are donated, the more we can provide to individuals in need.

Our collection point is: Otec Bike Shop, located in Halton Tennis Centre, Chestnut End, Halton, Aylesbury HP22 5PD.

The opening hours are: 

Thursday10 am–5 pm
Friday10 am–4 pm
