Get your bike fixed – for free!

Mecycle café and bike workshop, in Ainsdale, is taking part in the Big Bike Revival, so dust off that forgotten bike, take it to Mecycle and they’ll make it roadworthy – free of charge.

The Big Bike Revival is a national campaign which aims to encourage even more people to get out and enjoy the benefits of cycling. Mecycle is part of Autism Initiatives and support young adults with autism in work placements and employment. It will again be an active part of the Big Bike Revival for two weeks - the first week begins on Saturday 6 May, and the second starts on Saturday 27 May. If you take your bikes along during those two weeks you can get them back on the road.

Jon Gordon, Autism Initiatives Communication Manager, said, “There will be many people who haven’t cycled in years and have an old bike in the garage. This is your chance to dust it off, get it repaired and roadworthy and start biking this summer – all for free. We’re thrilled to be part of this campaign again, especially as we’re celebrating selling over 500 refurbished bikes in the last three years. For those who would like to buy a bike, we have a great range of refurbished bikes in store for sale.”

Mecycle will also run guided bike rides on Fridays at 10am for the whole six weeks of the Big Bike Revival. Call 01704 579353 to book a ride.

Please note that Mecycle hopes to get people cycling again and will make straight forward repairs such as brakes, cables and inner tubes, and there are some restrictions to the repairs offered for free.
