How often is Canberra BuyCycle held?
Once a year in October. Keep checking our website for details and updates.
If I want to sell a bike do I have to stay until it’s sold.
No you don’t. In fact you don’t even have to be there. You’ll be able to check online in realtime to see if your bike has been sold and we'll try and advise everyone by email or text after the conclusion of the event.
What if my bike doesn’t sell?
You’ll need to pick it up between 1.00–4.00pm on the day of the event. If you do not collect it at that time, it will be considered a donation to the Rotary Club of Canberra.
What will happen to my bike if I don't collect it during the designated time?
The bike will be either sold separately, or held over for future sale.
Does my bike need to be in perfect condition to sell?
Certainly not. Obviously we'd prefer it to be in a good, rideable and safe condition. If however it is inoperable or unroadworthy, we'll list it for sale on that basis. Any unrideable bikes that don't sell will be made roadworthy or potentially used for parts, by 'Bikes 4 Life'.
How do I buy a bike?
Simple, come along to the BuyCycle at Fitters Workshop (Kingston Foreshore) between 9am and 1pm on Sunday October 29, browse the bikes, take a test ride, when you have chosen one you can buy it there and then!
How do I get my bike to BuyCycle, or if I buy one, how do I get it home?
It is up to you to transport your bike - ride it there or home, or put it in the back of your car or trailer. In some circumstances we may be able to assist with collection. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I pay ?
We’ll accept cash, Paypal and credit card transactions (Mastercard & Visa only).
How much are the bikes?
We'll have bikes listed from under $10 right through to recent models worth many hundreds of dollars, so there should be a bike to suit everyone. If your looking for a commuter bike for example to get you to and from work, or just something for occasional rides on weekends, Canberra Buycycle is the place for you.
Can you make an offer on a bike?
Perhaps. Some sellers have a set price, whilst there or others who have told us they will consider a 'nearest offer' (ONO) on the price. The price on all DONATED bikes is negotiable. 95% of all the bikes offered last year were sold, so there are definite bargains to be had.
How can I DONATE a bike?
Bikes for donation can be dropped off at The Fitters Workshop (near Bus Depot Markets, Kingston Foreshore) on Saturday Afternoon (October 28) between 1pm and 4pm. We appreciate all donations, but bikes need to be in working order. A flat tyre or bikes requiring MINOR repairs will be gratefully accepted.
Is there an entrance fee to Canberra Buycycle?
No, but but a gold coin donation on entry is always appreciated.
How do I know if my bike Sells and how long does it take for me to receive the sales proceeds??
All bikes that have been listed on the Canberra Buycycle website will be marked as SOLD, usually within 30 minutes of any sale occurring. This page will be updated regularly during the event.
If your bike is sold, you should receive proceeds from the sale into your nominated bank account (or by cheque), within 5 working days after Buycycle.
