Ride On is now operating on an appointment only basis to help manage demand and keep everyone safe. Please do not visit the workshop to buy a bike without an appointment, as we cannot guarantee staff will be on site or free to help. You do not need an appointment to donate a bike but we recommend emailing to check first. For enquiries, email [email protected] Thank you.

Donate your bike

Right now the demand for bikes has never been higher and so we are urgently seeking more donations. Bikes offer independent travel, clean air, exercise and improved well being – all absolutely essential as we adjust to life in a pandemic. If you can donate your bike to help us achieve our vision for a cleaner, healthier and more active Exeter please get in touch.

Bicycle donations are what keep us going. In 2019 we put 681 bikes back into use in Devon. We will accept donations whatever state they are in. Even if we can’t save it, we can always strip the parts which we can put onto other bikes.

We are unable to make collections as we do not have any transport, so it would be fantastic if you could drop your kind donation at our workshop on 61 Haven Road near the quay. Donations can be received Tuesday – Saturday, 10-3 and you do not need an appointment. Please note – we will be shut on Sat 18th July and so will be unable to accept donations.

You might know someone who works in Exeter who can drop it off for you, to avoid creating extra car journeys.

We are establishing a network of drop off points to make it easier for people to donate their bikes. If you can’t get your bicycle to our workshop you can arrange to leave it at one of the following sites:

  • Briar Crescent, Wonford
  • Lewis Crescent, Digby (St Loyes)
  • Lympstone
  • Sidmouth
