Well Done on Pedal for Scotland - 15/09/14
A massive well done to everyone who took part in Pedal for Scotland on 7th September, especially our very own Morag Prach. In her own words "Looking for a challenge, get on your bike! I got on my bike only a year ago and on Sunday managed to cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh (47 miles). Feeling fitter and healthier with no intensive training. Just a regular weekly cycle with our ladies on a Thursday night."
All of our pre-owned bikes are serviced before they are re-homed, and come with a 60 day warranty.
Our part exchange scheme means you can swap your current bike against your next pre-owned bike. We welcome part exchange whatever the condition. Even it’s just the frame. So don’t chuck it, exchange it.
Please donate your old or unwanted bikes, we pick up for free, saving you a car journey to the local recycling depot! Click here to donate your bike.
I Am Bikes works alongside a broad range of groups in our community. We are always eager to hear from other community groups and encourage them to contact us.
We participate in initiatives to provide training for work skills through bike maintenance classes and work experience. We actively encourage continuing development to increase skills and abilities through training and knowledge. If you would like to find out more please contact us.
We run an active volunteer program and welcome team members from all areas of the community. If you can spare a few hours or more we would love to hear from you. Please click here to contact us.
