The Bike Project provides opportunities for DENS clients to learn bike maintenance skills and build their confidence in a supportive environment.
Under the supervision of our Bike Project manager, our clients learn to refurbish bikes that have been donated to us, which we then sell to help fund the project. Each participant gets to keep a bike they have worked on. The Bike Project also offers a wide range of bike servicing options.
We are passionate about the environment and sustainability. Not only does the project help save bikes from landfill, we also recycle all used inner tubes and tyres! We’ve partnered with Velorim and Schwalbe for this, and we’re pleased we can offer this service to our customers and community. Just bring your tubes and tyres for recycling to the shop during opening hours and we’ll do the rest. There is no charge for inner tube recycling. For tyres, it’s pay as you feel.
The Bike Project is also an official free Refill water station. Simply pop in, ask us to fill up your reusable water bottle and help stop plastic pollution at source.
