Perth Bike Station
It has been a busy few weeks. We have sold an incredible number of bikes and we want to keep providing affordable healthy options for travel in the coming weeks and months.
However we also need to look after our team and with that in mind The Bike Station will be closing from 24th March until further notice. This is to give our team time to be on their bikes (2 meters apart) and for us to come up with a plan about how we can keep refurbishing bikes for the years to come.
The Bike Station relies on the sale of refurbished bikes as our main income. With our shops closed this will be challenging times. We will be launching a pay it forward campaign shortly.
In the meantime if you are able to support us and donate please do:

See you soon
From the team at The Bike Station in Perth and Edinburgh
Perth Bike Station opened in 2010 with just two staff. We have come a long way since then – as of July 2017 we have collected over 25,000 bicycles across Perth & Kinross and have seven members of staff and twelve volunteers.
Perth has lots of projects on the go – we are especially proud to work with the Scottish Prison Service on a Robertson Trust funded project that works with offenders. Other projects include a Scottish and Southern Energy funded Build Your Own Bike project in Aberfeldy, and working with the Sustrans iBike project in schools. We have developed a programme of Dr Bike sessions at Dundee University, Ninewells Hospital and Perth and Kinross Council, promoted Bikeability sessions in local schools, and supported a training workshop in The Murray Royal Hospital. We also work with volunteers from the Perth & Kinross Council Employment Support Team and provide work placements for Barnardo’s Works.
