Bike Stop Darlington Ltd was set up as a Social Enterprise by First Stop Darlington which is a local charity supporting people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and those who are chronically excluded from society. The shop was opened in November 2012 in Skinnergate, Darlington and brings something new and different to the town.

Bike Stop is a specialist cycle shop which takes donated pre-loved vintage and modern day bicycles and rescues, recycles, upcycles, and updates them ready for their next owner. We also have a service and repair centre and you can find out more about costs on our repairs page.

In addition to the cycle shop we run a cycle hub which provides the following services:

  • Led Rides
  • Maintenance courses
  • Walks
  • Doctor Bike sessions
  • Secure Bike Parking
  • Work placements/work experience

More information about our rides, courses and workshops can be found on our events page.
