Emergency Bike Bank

We are currently based in Greenford and is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in England and Wales. As a not-for-profit operation we can tackle difficult and challenging areas such as working with young offenders, equipping them with the experience and training they’ll need to move into employment. We recycle bikes as part of our programmes as well, giving the community access to affordable bikes that have been used to put skills back into the local area…

Our aim is to establish a Emergency Bike Bank (EBB) for NHS frontline medical staff and key workers within the London Borough of Hounslow, to match them, free of charge, with bikes donated by the general public and from other sources. LBH will refurbish the bikes for NHS staff and key workers to then use them to travel safely to and from work and avoid overcrowded buses, trains and tubes as Covid-19 lockdown restrictions are relaxed.

We recognise the benefits cycling will bring. This includes avoiding the use of limited public transport and use of cars with leading too corresponding pollution and congestion. We need to help protect our essential workers and keep them moving safely by allowing them to travel with social distancing in mind, reducing their exposure to Covid-19 virus. We also believe that it helps in improving the physical and mental wellbeing of the individuals who have made this lifestyle change and we want to support medical staff and key workers in their day-to-day efforts in looking after and protecting the vulnerable individuals in our local communities in Hounslow.

We are looking to raise an initial £5000, to support the following:

    Funding to help repair and refurbish the donated bikes and ensure that is safe to ride. We will also use the funds to provide cycle locks, lights, and helmets along with cycle support for cycle safety training and route planning

    Donations of bikes (in refurbishable condition) that people no longer have a use for, and that you would like to see used to support NHS frontline and key workers.

A whopping 364,000 bikes are produced and 47,670 are sold every day globally.  In fact, bikes are produced at a rate twice the rate of cars. Considering these staggering numbers, it’s no surprise bike waste is a problem worldwide. It’s estimated roughly 15 million bikes are discarded by their owners every year. And, unsurprisingly, many of these unwanted bikes end up in landfills. So instead of bikes going to landfill, think about donating the bike for someone to make use of, in this case, NHS frontline staff and key workers.

Please help protect our essential NHS workers to keep moving and save lives!

Helping Hounslow Council with children’s bikes

IMG_2226IMG_2199IMG_2211

Answering a call from a London Borough of Hounslow primary school and Ruth Cadbury, MP for Brentford and Isleworth, London Bike Hub was able to collect, refurbish and deliver bikes to the school – its bikes had been stolen.

The bikes were made road-worthy and are now with the school.

A teacher at the school said “We have a cycle course in the playground and it is fabulous to watch the children honing their cycling skills”.

Unique benefits and features of Frog bikes Thanks to research gathered by Brunel University Sports scientists, Frog bikes

  • have child-specific geometry and components to match.
  • the bikes are sized by leg length rather than height for a more accurate fit
  • come with a steeper seat-tube angle and shorter reach to give the best set-up for smaller riders
  • the cranks (pedal arms) have a narrower pedal spacing, which gives a more comfortable, efficient riding style than cranks intended for adults and their wider pelvises
  • brake levers are sized for shorter fingers, their reach adjustable to suit even very small hands.

There’s a Frog bike for young riders all the way from 18 months old up to 13+. 

Contrary to tradition, stabilisers are not the best way to get children riding bikes, as they become dependent on the stabilisers rather than using them to learn how to balance. A much better way to get them started on their journey to becoming a confident cyclist is a balance bike like the Frog Tadpole. By learning to scoot along first, children then rapidly pick up the fundamentals of balance and control necessary for moving on to pedal bikes like the Frog 40, for example.

The Frog hybrids are great all-rounders, equally happy in the park, on the road, or on the tow-path. The robust but light frames make cycling a joy across a range of conditions. For those cyclists who want to take their riding a step further, conquering longer distances on-road with ease, the 58, 67 and 70 are the perfect choices. Featuring Microshift integrated brake/gear levers and 9-speed or 18-speed drivetrains, these road bikes are agile, easy to handle, and fun to ride.

The NEW Frog Mountain Bikes are part of the company’s Push The Limits range, and feature a suspension fork and easy-reach hydraulic brakes, for example, which have been specially tailored for younger, lighter riders. The 1 x 9 drivetrains mirror the latest developments in adult mountain biking, but these bikes are aimed at providing keen junior riders with the best off-road handling across a range of terrains.

If your children dream of competitive cycling on indoor or outdoor tracks built for speed, the Track 58, 67 and 70 are perfectly specified for the velodrome or grass tracks. Responsive, aerodynamic and fast, these bikes are once again designed from scratch based on extensive research, rather than being miniature adult bikes.
