From Borders to Burundi

It was back in late 2018 when Just Cycle first teamed up with Nigel from bikes to Africa. Nigel’s project provided an ideal solution for the charity, preventing donated bicycles deemed unfit for repair from ending up back in the recycling centre as scrap.

Weekend Away with MBR

Somewhere at the back of a cupboard during a recent clear out, a friend of Just Cycle rediscovered a copy of an April 1999 Mountain Bike Rider for the princely sum of £2.95! Okay, so apart from the obvious price comparison of yesteryear, there’s nothing much exciting about that I hear you holler… well just […]

Cornerstone of the Community

Over the years, Just Cycle have been incredibly fortunate in receiving some amazing donations of bicycles from the local community.
