Our workshops are fun and suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds. No bike experience is needed as we have a number of roles for our volunteers! We are open every Wednesday (see below) so come and join us! Our only request is that you wear closed in shoes!
WEEKLY WORKSHOPS – WEDNESDAYS 2-4PM
Our warehouse manager, Mark Nicholson, runs weekly workshops. Each Wednesday from 2-4pm we sort through donated bikes and conduct repairs to prepare our bikes for their new homes. We are currently providing bikes to local community groups, refugees and are supporting adhoc requests for those in need. If you have any questions about are workshops, please email Mark Bikes 4 Life.

RETHINK. REDUCE. REUSE. RECYCLE.
We are excited to announce we are part of Kimbriki’s The Hub Open Day on Sunday 4th November. Details below. We hope you can join us.
Our Sydney Warehouse is currently only accepting bikes in
good working condition.
At this time we are unable to accept any bike parts, clothing, helmets or any other cycling related items. We have a huge backlog of donated bikes, which is fantastic, but we simply don’t have the manpower at the moment to service bikes that require too much work.
If you are unsure if your bikes is suitable please email a photo to Mark Bikes 4 Life. A guide on what makes a great bike to donate, is to understand that our bikes are being gifted to those most in need. We want to proud of the bike standard we supply and we definitely want the recipient to be proud to receive it. So, please be proud to donate! A little bit of rust, deflated tyres and a broken chain is absolutely fine!
Thank you for your understanding.
