Bike Back Derby is a bike recycling project in Derby that has developed an enterprising and socially beneficial way of providing affordable bikes to those who work, live or study in the city or travel through it as commuters.

The driving force behind the project is a group of prisoners and ex-offenders who are using newly acquired skills to transform neglected and unloved bikes. They are supported by the Bike Back Derby project, run by Life Cycle UK, a charity that transforms lives through cycling.

The work and success of the project has been recognised in the latest issue of Get Britain Cycling magazine which is part of the current issue of Local Transport Today.
