Good bye old bikes they have gone to Outfitmoray and their recycling project. There will be a Recycling centre near you!

I had two fairly old Mountain Bikes and had promised them to Outfitmoray a charity who recycle old bikes.I got them out and took them along to Lossiemouth where they will recycle them for others to use a great idea.

If you have any old bikes I am sure there will be a local Recycle near you and I am now looking for an new/old bike and my mate Derrick may sell me one of his and I can get out on the bike again now I am feeling much better. I had some fun on my bikes in the past making the remoter hills a bit more accessible and now I am recovering I am looking forward to some more bike fun.

Todays Tip – always wear a helmet!

The Project

Bike Revolution is a bicycle workshop in Lossiemouth, set up by award-winning outdoor education charity, Outfit Moray in 2012. The reason for our existence is to get more people out on a bike. Pure and simple. On road or off. Fast or slow.

We aim to do this by providing affordable refurbished bikes for sale, bike maintenance classes, servicing,  route guides, safety checks, roadshows and link ups with projects such as Cycling Scotland’s Bikeability.

The project relies on generous donations of bikes from members of the community. No matter their condition we accept bikes or parts, which are then either lovingly refurbished or used as a donor and recycled.

Bike Revolution is a social enterprise project – this means we operate to improve the community of Moray, people’s life chances and the environment. We reinvest our profits back into Outfit Moray for the benefit of the local community.

We are very proud to work with local businesses and social enterprises including Varis Training,  Gordonstoun, Active Schools, Baxter’s and Moray Council.

Aims & Objectives

  • To reduce travel-related carbon emissions by increasing the number of people who use cycling rather than driving as a transport method for short journeys.
  • 

To reduce CO2 emissions by reducing the amount of aluminium and steel being transported to and put in landfill sites by recycling and refurbishing unwanted bikes.
  • To improve the health and fitness levels of local people by getting more people out cycling, by providing affordable bikes and servicing, guided bike rides, and classes on maintaining their bikes.

Donate A Bike

Bike Revolution relies on generous donations of bikes from members of the community. We accept any bike, big or small, old or new, and all parts, no matter what their condition. Wherever possible, we’ll give the bikes a new lease of life and find them a loving home, or take all the working parts and use them to rebuild another bike.

You can drop off a bike you’d like to donate at Bike Revolution HQ, 15 Shore Street, Lossiemouth, IV31 6PB, between 9am and 5pm Monday – Friday. Alternatively, if you can’t make it down to us, you can drop the bike at your local scrap metal recycling centre, which we visit regularly for collections:



Buckie: Gollachy Recycling Centre, Barhill Road, AB56 1DU
