South Downs Bikes Trade In

We are offering up to £400 against a new bicycle* when you trade in your old one. So, if your current machine is looking worse for wear and isn't economical to bring back up to a suitable standard, now is the time to swing by. All the bikes we take in will be donated to the Durrington Recycle Project to be renovated and given back to the community.

Save money and save your old bike from going to landfill – everyone wins!

*Full price bikes, in-store only. Donated bicycles must be complete, a frame or set of wheels alone does not qualify. For full terms and conditions, see our website.

We never like to see a bicycle go to waste. Sometimes though, it just doesn't make economic sense to repair a thoroughly worn out machine when compared with the cost of picking up something brand new. But – and it's a big but – that doesn't mean the end of the road for your old bike.

Around the country, volunteer-run organisations work tirelessly to rescue these bicycles and offer them to those who might not otherwise have access to two-wheeled transport. Round here, that comes in the form of the Durrington Community Cycle Project. This winter, we're teaming up with them to take in all the bikes that have seen better days and offer you a better price on a new one in return. As long as the bicycle in question is still recognisable as a complete bike, you can drop it off and take up to £400 off the price of a brand new bicycle on our shop floor.

So, you can win three times over. Not only are you saved the job of getting rid of the old bike, but it's going to be given a new lease of life AND you save a bundle of cash.

T's & C's:
