In the developing world the most useful are adult sized sturdy hybrids or mountain bikes and BMX sized bikes.
Generally we can’t accept small children’s bikes because we can’t find homes for the really little ones, but anything from BMX size up to full adult size is in demand. The BMX’s are particularly useful for our aboriginal community schools program.
If you have an adult sized bike in reasonable condition that is suitable for the developing world we can still use it to benefit the project by re-purposing it for use here through partnerships with other bike based charities – it will certainly be put to good use and find a new life.
