Do you want to get rid of your old bike, but it is too good for the scrap metal? With the "a second life for used bikes" project, your discarded bike will get a second life.

Take your bicycle to the recycling centre

You can take your old bike to one of our recycling points or thrift shop in the region bring. 


SitY Academy, Bewonersorganisatie Monnikenhof, De Gezel and Opnieuw & Co Leerdam repair discarded bicycles so that they are usable again and meet legal requirements. Then they make sure the bikes end up in a good place: with people on a small budget who cannot afford a new bike.

Work for people in vulnerable position

All workshops employ people with a vulnerable position on the labour market as bicycle mechanics. They work here in a safe environment. Under the guidance of a learning master, they develop into craftsmen.

Successful cooperation

The cycling project is a collaboration between SitY Academy, Monnikenhof residents' association, The Companion, municipality of Vijfheerenlanden, Again & Co Leerdam and Waardlanden. Since its launch in July 2021, the partners have made a great effort to make the "A second life for used bicycles" project a success.
