WeCycle greatly appreciate the donation of unwanted bikes and bicycle parts for our project. Bikes can be donated at the WeCycle community bike shed located at Batman Park, cnr Arthurton Road and St Georges Road, Northcote, Vic 3072, Melbourne, Australia.  We are open on Saturdays from 10am - 3pm.

We ask our donors to consider the usefulness of their donations -

Bicycles, parts and tools need to be of some use. Some supermarket bikes such as Crane, Huffy, Dunlop and Kent seen in Australia have had the following shortcomings which make them unsuitable for re-homing:

  • Poor quality metal and chrome which rust after just a short time exposed to the elements.

  • Peeling paint

  • Too heavy

  • Grip shifters that seize

  • Components that are not repairable

If you would like to volunteer at the WeCycle community bike shed, come and visit us on a Saturday and we will make you welcome.

Thank You

Without the help of many kind and generous people and organisation WeCycle could not have been established and operate as it does, so a very special thanks go out to:

  • Co-founders Gayle and Craig would like to thank their partners and families for their understanding and belief.

  • The team at City of Darebin Sustainable Homes and Communities who ran the the Community Leaders in Sustainability program in 2015 during which Craig Jackson and Gayle Ilievski first met and discovered a shared passion of providing bicycles for those without the means to own one. The team leaders and other course participants provided great support and encouragement to get the wheels in motion for this project.

  • Angela Andrews, Sustainable Transport Officer and the team at City of Darebin Environment & Sustainable Transport for providing ongoing support and collaboration in local cycling initiatives.

  • Special thanks to Kirsteen MacLeod of The Compost Depot for her greatly appreciated assistance with transporting bicycles and events.

  • Co-founders Gayle and Craig would like to thank their partners and families for their understanding and belief.

  • The Banksia Gardens Bike Hub for their advice in the early days.

  • Good Cycles for your auspicing us in the early days and providing valuable support and advice.

  • Bikes at Work team particularly Nell Sudano for invaluable advice and brain picking

  • The team of volunteers that have joined WeCycle to work on bicycles and make it possible for us to distribute them to those in need.

  • A big thank you to all those who have generously donated unwanted or discarded bicycles, parts and equipment.

A big Thank You !
