Bike Recycling at Bristol Prison showcased on North Bristol Arts Trail

Local charity Life Cycle UK is opening up its bike recycling workspace at Horfield Prison as part of the North Bristol Arts Trail, 10am to 6pm on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November, offering the public a rare chance to see how a bike recycling project works in a prison environment.

The charity is encouraging local people to come and view its exhibition of cycling themed artwork, drop off an unwanted bike to recycle, or buy a bike already refurbished by the project.

From 10am – 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday, Life Cycle will be showcasing bicycle and cycling themed artwork from a number of local artists, photographers and craftsmen; from illustrations, photography and artwork, to tatoo’d bikes and laser-etched bike parts, to upcycled products and furniture made from spent parts.

The weekend will also be a chance to purchase a bike already refurbished by the project, with a small selection of bikes ready to view, try out and buy on the day. Adult bikes are mostly priced between £60 and £130, although there will also be a few higher quality bikes too.

Life Cycle will be accepting donations of unwanted bikes between 10am – 6pm. Any bike, any age, any condition, they’d love to have it. To find them, head into Horfield Prison car park – Cambridge Road BS7 8PS – turn hard right and follow the signs!
