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. 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 have 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.
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.
We appreciate your support and generous donation to our project
WeCycle would like to thank everyone who has generously supported our project:
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.
Our friends from the Darebin Community Leaders in Sustainability program. With special thanks to Charlie, Sam and Eva for their help and support.
Georgia and everyone from The Banksia Gardens Bike Hub for their advice.
Nell Sudano from Squeaky Wheel for invaluable advice and brain picking.
Kim Northmore, for big time logistical support as well as saving and donating a bike
Special thank you to Alan Page
And a very special BIG thank to everyone at Good Cycles for your support, advice and cooperation
Then there are the many generous donations of bicycles, parts equipment. Now so many to thank individually. A big Thank You!
