Buy a Bike!

We collect abandoned bicycles that have been seized by the municipality. These are repaired by us and by MSN Goirle, an organisation that employs people with a mild handicap. This way, we give the bikes a new life, and the people at MSN a shot at the labour market!

Rent a Bike!

We also offer a bike rental service. The price per day is €5, but renting a bike for a week costs only €25! Contact us or check out the 'services' section of our Facebook page for more information about the bikes and prices.

Making an appointment

Send us a message on Facebook or send an email to saveabikestore@gmail.com to make an appointment. Appointments can be made outside of opening hours: the opening hours also apply without appointments.
About our project

About our project

Many reintegration workers are having a hard time getting back on the labor market. Often, this is because they are missing skills that could make them more valuable to employers, and therefore, they are looking for a way to learn something new.

In the city of Tilburg there are a lot of bikes that are being left behind, all broken or neglected. These bikes are collected every once in a while by the municipality, but will then lose their function.

In collaboration with our partner company MSN Tilburg, we combine the willingness to work and to learn of the reintegration workers with the neglected bike problem in Tilburg. The reintegration workers are educated so that they can develop skills as a bike mechanic. The reintegration workers will learn specific skills such as repairing bikes, planning, team collaboration and other general skills that are needed in the workplace. The bikes are then painted a bright blue and sold to students for an affordable price. This should also hopefully result in a reduction in bike theft.

By collecting and recycling damaged, abandoned bicycles, we aim to clean up the environment of Tilburg. Also, we are tackling problems of unemployment by educating individuals with a distance to the labor market. The experiences they gain within the Save a Bike project will aid them in finding a suitable job.
