Cardiff Cycle Workshop is CTW’s award-winning bike-recycling enterprise and repair workshop.

Our mission is to increase access to cycling and reduce the number of bikes going onto the scrapheap. That’s why we take in unwanted and abandoned bikes, recondition them. and then sell them to the general public at our workshop sales.


Without donated bikes, Cardiff Cycle Workshop could not operate. It’s as simple as that! So, if you have an old bike you no longer need, for whatever reason, we’d be glad to to take it in. Provided you can bring the bike to the workshop, we won’t turn you away. If you can’t come during our opening times, you can leave the bike at the Cardiff Council Recycling Centres at Bessemer Close and Lamby Way where there are dedicated cages for bikes.


Volunteers are the lifeblood of our workshop. If you have some spare time and would like to get involved in refurbishing our bikes please give Workshop Coordinator, Jon, a call on 07808 987798. Alternatively, you can download an application form here.


Are you planning to develop your own bike recycling project? If so, you can take advantage of our experience for help and advice. Please get in touch.
