WE ARE OPEN!
Our Opening hours have been updated: Fridays and Saturdays 10am-4.30pm for bike sales and on the spot repairs. Our address is: The Bike Station, 284 High St, Perth PH1 5QS.
We’ve listened to customer feedback and have made improvements to how we do things. We want to make sure our team and our communities stay safe AND that you can still cycle home an affordable quality refurbished bike. Please read all the information below to understand how we operate at the moment.

- In Perth, we have a single queue and a one in one out policy.
- We use a one-way system in store. Look out for the arrows on the floor and please follow any advice provided by our team.

We are doing minor repairs on the spot on Fridays and Saturdays (puncture repair and minor adjustments), but please wait outside until it’s finished and the mechanic will let you know when to come in. We will clean your bike when it’s received and when it’s handed back.

From the team at The Bike Station in Perth and Edinburgh
Perth Bike Station opened in 2010 with just two staff members. 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.
