Bikes in Need is a project in York, UK.
We donated out first bike to a refugee from Syria in 2016 and have been gifting bikes ever since.
Giving a bike to a person in real need is a life-changing event. It means they can travel for work, travel to appointments without using expensive public transport, travel to cheaper supermarkets / shops etc. A bike also encourages exercise, is great for a person’s mental health and widens the world available to them. When you have very little, a bike is freedom.
Bikes in Need has been gifting bikes to refugees, homeless people living in hostels and anyone who has a genuine need in the city of York. All our bikes are donated or abandoned and given with lights and locks.
If you would like to donate please have a look at our Current Needs list.
