Headroom Bikes – Jami
Jami is working in association with Recycle your Cycle for their new bike shop, Head Room Bikes in Borehamwood.
Head Room Bikes will stock good quality, refurbished second hand bikes for all members of the family at affordable prices. In addition, service users will be trained in bicycle repair and refurbishment to provide a bicycle maintenance service to the local community. Most of the bikes will be supplied through our programme and from our collections of abandoned bikes from across the country.

We are so grateful that we have lots of individuals wanting to donate their unwanted bicycles to us. Unfortunately, we currently do not have the capacity to be able to collect less than 20 bikes at a time. We are delighted to announce, however, that we are now working with Sue Ryder to reduce bikes that end up in landfill. Individual adult and youth bikes can be taken to selected Sue Ryder shops so, if you have a bike that you would like to donate, please contact your local Sue Ryder shop to see if they can take it: http://www.sueryder.org/shop-with-us/high-street-shopping/find-your-nearest-shop.
These bicycles will be used to help prisoner rehabilitation and raise funds to provide hospice and neurological care – so thank you if you choose to donate your bike!
Our next steps
As the prisoner workshops have been such a success, we are looking to continue to expand this programme into the wider community to support those struggling or in disadvantaged groups. We are setting up additional workshops to provide technical training to help both young and old to learn a new trade when opportunities may seem limited. Keep checking our page to find out about the new workshops that we are opening!
The Evans Cycles Trade In
We are delighted to have worked with Evans Cycles for the 2nd year on their trade-in promotion. We collected the traded in bicycles from Evans stores across the country to be taken to one of our seven prison workshops. The bicycles were then fully refurbished which supported our prisoner rehabilitation programme. The refurbished bicycles were then delivered to our various Charity partners retail outlets, helping them raise additional funds for their causes.
