Bike Revolution is a bicycle workshop in Lossiemouth, set up by award-winning outdoor education charity, Outfit Moray in 2012. The reason for our existence is to get more people out on a bike. Pure and simple. On road or off. Fast or slow.
We aim to do this by providing affordable refurbished bikes for sale, bike maintenance classes, servicing, route guides, safety checks, roadshows and link ups with projects such as Cycling Scotland’s Bikeability.
The project relies on generous donations of bikes from members of the community. No matter their condition we accept bikes or parts, which are then either lovingly refurbished or used as a donor and recycled.
If you need any more incentive to get involved, our patron, Karen Darke (British silver medal winning paralympian!), will have you captivated and enthralled with tales of her adventures and accomplishments.
Bike Revolution is a social enterprise project – this means we operate to improve the community of Moray, people’s life chances and the environment. We reinvest our profits back into Outfit Moray for the benefit of the local community.
We are very proud to work with local businesses and social enterprises including Varis Training, Gordonstoun, Active Schools, Baxter’s and Moray Council.
Aims & Objectives

- To reduce CO2 emissions by reducing the amount of aluminium and steel being transported to and put in landfill sites by recycling and refurbishing unwanted bikes.
- To improve the health and fitness levels of local people by getting more people out cycling, by providing affordable bikes and servicing, guided bike rides, and classes on maintaining their bikes.
