Bike Rescue Update!
4 YEARS OLD AND 5000 BIKES!
The Bike Rescue Project has recently celebrated a milestone in its recycling activities by taking in 5000 unwanted and abandoned bikes and refurbishing them for sale to the City's growing army of cyclists.
The not-for-profit organisation, run by Bernie Cullen and Mick Brown, currently operates out of Parkside Commercial Centre on Terry Avenue, where they have workshops, store rooms and a showroom.
They are open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 6pm, and have a late night opening 'til 8pm Thursdays.Bike Rescue are especially grateful for the donations of old bikes by members of the public, and their collection service has gone from strength to strength. If you have an old bike you wish to donate and cannot get to the Parkside Workshop yourself to drop it off call them on 01904 733789 to arrange a collection. Special bike recycling points have also been installed at waste sites throughout North Yorkshire for those who cannot get into York, and Bike Rescue make regular visits to pick up the unwanted machines.
