25 March - Re-Cycle bike sale


Re-cycle open their doors on the last Saturday morning of every month 09:00 - 13:00 to sell bikes from their warehouse

Roughly 3-4% of the bikes donated to Re~Cycle are either unsuitable for Africa (such as thin wheeled racing bikes) or are bikes with disc brakes for which the parts that are not readily available in Africa and thus less likely to be useable. Instead of recycling these bikes they sell them at the local University of Essex and at their warehouse in Wormingford, generating a sustainable income to help towards covering their running costs.

Most bikes are priced from £75 to £150 although they usually have some top range bikes that will be above this range. Many of these bikes are sold to students or people just starting out as cyclists and therefore looking for an affordable first bike. However they usually have some high quality bikes that, although at higher prices are still a good bargain. All bikes have been thoroughly checked over by their experienced and qualified mechanic and come with a 60 day guarantee.

There will usually be a choice of over 50 new and refurbished bikes of different types, sizes and styles as well as a selection of children’s bikes, lights and locks. They do not however sell spare parts. Please come down early if you want to grab yourself a bargain. 

Payment: cash or card accepted

Location: Re~Cycle, Unit 8 The Grove Estate, Colchester Road, Wormingford, Colchester, C06 3AJ

 They also sell bikes every weekday between 08:30 - 16:30.

Self-confessed petrolhead Ashley Parmenter learned to drive a car before he tried riding a bike at the age of 19. He likes having a car for long journeys but thinks the bike is best for short trips. And learning to cycle has also provided him with some interesting jobs.
