Cardiff Cycle Workshop

About Us

Cardiff Cycle Workshop is Cardiff’s award winning bike recycling centre. We’re part of Cycle Training Wales, the leading provider of cycle training services in Wales and a not for profit social enterprise. We set up in September 2010 with funding from The Big Lottery. In September 2011 we were delighted to win the Innovation in Recycling award at the Wales Recycling Awards 2011.

Our mission is to increase access to cycling  and reduce the number of bikes going onto the scrapheap.

 

Recycling

We take in unwanted and abandoned bikes, recondition them and then sell them to the general public at our monthly workshop sales. All the bikes undergo a thorough assessment , before being serviced using both new and recycled components. Finally all bikes are subjected to a Pre-Delivery Inspection by one of our qualified mechanics before being put on sale. Bikes and components that cannot be reused are sent for recycling.

 

Sales

We hold a sale of reconditioned bikes at the workshop on the first Saturday of every month. A range of reconditioned bikes will be available, adult bikes starting at £50 and children’s at £5. All bikes have been fully checked by our qualified mechanics and are sold with a 3 month mechanical warranty. We are also open to the public every Friday, 1pm-4pm, for sales of both bikes and recycled parts.

Cardiff Cycle Workshop is the Cardiff venue for maintenance courses delivered by our parent company Cycle Training Wales. For details of courses please visit http://www.cycletrainingwales.org.uk/?page_id=17
