Bike Market - 27th April 2017

Dear Parent / Guardian


Your child’s school has been invited to participate in a second hand bike market on the 27th April 2017 at Eldon Primary School, Eldon Road, London, N9 8LG.


The markets enable parents to recycle unwanted bicycles, earn some money and in the process create affordable bike stock for others in their community. If you have any old bikes gathering dust please bring them along, they do not need to be working (although we don’t take scrap) as every bike is checked over by a mechanic before being sold.


If you are looking for a bike for your child or yourself then come along in the afternoon to choose from an affordable, serviced, theft-free selection of bikes.


The event is a one off this year so don’t miss out!


How it works -

  • 08:00-10:30 parents drop off bikes for selling and we tag them with their details. These are added to the selection of child and young adult bikes (and adult on request*) we bring along.
  • 09:30-15:00 mechanic checks every bike and makes minor repairs where necessary and then sellers contacted with valuation.
  • 15:00-17:00 market opens for people to buy bikes. We accept credit cards and cash.
  • next day: sellers notified of sales. Payments will be made within 2 working days of sale via bank or PayPal transfer.
  • unsold bikes can be collected anytime on the day or we take them and sell at other markets
  • (25% commission charge in these instances).
  • Any questions - please email


*Any parent looking for a bike for themselves should complete a Wanted form on our website at least 48 hours before the event and we will try and bring something suitable along.


Kind regards,
