Green Bike Project

What we do

The Green Bike Project rescues and repairs unwanted bikes.

The idea is simple. We take in unwanted bicycles from the general public and go about fixing them up with the help of our service-users.

The project is usually based at the picturesque old Victorian stable block at Holywells Park in Ipswich after it's Heritage Lottery funded renovation. The Stable Block along with the stunning Orangery and terraced gardens have been rejuvenated by the recent work and look stunning.Please note that we have temporarily moved to 6 Wright Road, ipswich.

Our Green Bike Project received wide recognition as the people's choice to win ITV Anglia East's first People's Millions grant of 2008.

Supporters voted for the project to win the grant in a closely fought head-to-head battle for the public's votes on Monday on ITV Anglia East regional news.

The emphasis of the project is very much upon sharing and encouraging people to learn new skills for the benefit of the whole community.

If you would like to purchase a bike, get your old one serviced or would like further information then please call in at 6 Wright Road, Ipswich or phone 07487413150. We are open Tuesday to Friday 9.30 to 3.30 and Saturday 9.30 to 1pm. Our privacy notice relating to cycle sales and repairs can be found here

Alternatively we can sometimes collect bicycles in our vans - please email your name, address and contact number to dale.davey@orwellmencap.co.uk.
