We need unwanted bikes for our youth initiative: Carney’s Cycles

We are running more of our successful ‘fix a bike and keep it’ workshops and need bike donations for young people to fix up. The initiative continues, as part of a national campaign called #knivesdownbikesup.

Rory, our lead youth worker says:

The bike workshop has come about to combat the rise in knife crime which is taking too many young lives on the capital’s streets

There’s currently a social movement led by young people, called #knivesdownbikesup

We’ve found that young people in our community are wanting to get involved in bikes by learning to fix and maintain them as well as simply owning one, but usually due to a lack of money, they’re unable to afford a bike that works and is safe.

Donations needed

Bike workshops can only happen if there are bikes. If you possibly can, please donate old or spare bikes, so that young people in the borough can continue to take part in more workshops.

Anyone able to do so should email Rory at
