Cycle Project

Our services

The cycle project at School House Cafe serves the local community. A team of volunteers maintain and repair the bikes that are brought in. Rather than have a charging system, the owners are invited to make a donation to Fresh Hope and cover the cost of any parts that have to be purchased. We have also refurbished and sold donated bikes, although our capacity to do this is now limited as the maintenance and repair service has proved so popular!

We’d love to be able to grow the team by training up more volunteers and to offer opportunities for adults at risk to gain some work skills. If you’re interested, please contact us or drop by for a chat on a Wednesday afternoon.

    Why we started

    The two main drivers were to serve local people and to give people who find work challenging an opportunity to gain working skills in a safe environment. We have been operating since January 2017 and have dealt with more than 100 bikes.

    Bikes for sale!


    We have an ever changing stock of adult and children's bikes for sale at low prices, in a variety of sizes and styles.

    Children's bikes are typically priced from £10 to £30 and adult's from £30 to £60. They are available to view and purchase on Wednesdays from 12noon to 3pm at The School House Café, St Paul's rd. GL50 4EZ, Cheltenham.

    All our bikes are serviced before sale and all proceeds go to the Schoolhouse Café charity (Fresh Hope).
