Edinburgh's local bike recycling shop takes old bikes and recycles them. Even the bikes that aren't roadworthy are stripped of any useful, functioning parts and then used to build new machines by seasoned mechanics.
As well as selling refurbished bikes for both children and adults, the Bike Station offers lessons in bicycle maintenance, and its sells secondhand parts. You can even fix your own bike at the station. Check ahead for times.
Donations of unwanted bicycles are welcomed throughout the week.
