What to do with your old bike

RecycleAs you've probably heard - and I keep hearing, ancedotally - bicycle sales in London have gone crazy since July 7. For every one of the shiny new Ridgebacks rolling out across the capital, however, there's probably an old bike rusting quietly away in a shed. Which is where Re-Cycle comes in. Give your old two wheeler to Re-Cycle and it'll refurb it and it ship it off to Africa - I refer you to the cheery kids riding old Royal Mail bikes in the photo. All you have to do is drop the bike off in Colchester (Essex) or Glasgow; new collection points are planned in London, Oxford and Bristol shortly. Re-Cycle's website.

Or you could give it to one of London's local cycling campaign recycling schemes also. Hackney and Waltham Forest both run schemes that recycle and refurbish old bikes. Also very good for getting a cheap bike if you're thinking about commuting!
