Gearing Up Bikes is part of…..
…….a social enterprise based close to the centre of Wigan (just near to Go Outdoors)
What we do
- Recycle unloved & unwanted bikes
- Support and train people into employment, learning new practical skills
- Sell low cost / affordable bikes – promoting healthy lifestyles, travel to work and reduction in congestion
Based in local workshops we provide all these services alongside a friendly café & meeting facilities.
Working with communities and local groups we promote cycling through access to bikes, and development of skills and confidence.
In partnership with public services and other organisations we promote cycling and alternative forms of transport for health, leisure and work.
We’re committed to recycling
We rely on public support to help develop this work
We need donations of bikes – if you drop them off we’ll put the kettle on and open the biscuits (but we’ll also collect them if that’s better for you)
We really need you to spread the word to get people to call in to see what we do, get your bike fixed or buy a “new” one
