Bike SA: peak body for recreational cycling – runs its own recycling schemes e.g to supply BMX and mountain bikes to the APY lands – also has information on other organisations.

Bicycles for Humanity: local branch of this international organisation, collecting bicycles for overseas aid. They have already shipped one container load of bikes, to Namibia, in partnership with a local organisation there, to supply bikes to a local community and set up a bike shop. They are currently (Dec 2015) organising a second container, and expect to be collecting more bikes in 2016.

BikeKitchen: a community bike workshop in Bowden, where people can meet to rebuild old bikes, share a meal, have a good time.

TADSA: Technical Aid to the Disabled – provide one-off solutions to needs of disabled people, including adapting bikes.

Mens Sheds: in various locations around South Australia, places for older men to meet,  keep up  skills, and contribute to the community. Many accept bikes for recycling, the best known being perhaps Blackwood. Use Google to see if there is one near you.
