RESPOKE PROJECT LONDON CYCLING AWARD WINNERReSpoke is Trailnet’s award-winning bike recycling project where we receive unwanted bikes from a number of sources and return them to use by the community. Many of these bikes are provided at low cost to those for whom buying a roadworthy bike is a barrier to them cycling for transport or leisure.

We currently operate from two sites:

Becontree Cycle Centre

Tel. 0208 593 1677


Thorndon Cycle Centre

Thorndon Country Park, Brentwood CM13 3RZ

Tel. 01277 218497


The objective of ReSpoke is to offer:

  • A selection of good value refurbished bikes, with the chance to trade-in your old bike
  • Volunteer opportunities for those with time on their hands to help with a range of tasks including bike mechanics, DIY and administration
  • A range of bike maintenance courses from basic servicing to full rebuilds.

How to get involved

Volunteer – if you can spare a few hours, we can always use help with refurbishing bikes, office administration, or general maintenance tasks

Donate a bike – don’t let that old bike rust away in your garage, let us have it and we can hopefully get it back running like new so that someone can benefit from having a roadworthy bike

Buy a bike – we have a range of good quality used bikes for all ages, so if you’re looking for a bike and have a limited budget, come and see what we have on offer. To reduce the price even further, bring your old bike as a trade-in or come and do some of the recycling work yourself for extra credit. To see if we have a used bike that meets your requirements, just complete our bike enquiry form below.

Get to know your bike – whether you just want to know how to repair a puncture or would like to carry out a full service under the supervision of one of our experienced mechanics, we have a bike maintenance session for you
