Barrhead Melo Velo

Barrhead Melo Velo

The Barrhead Centre’s Melo Velo is a service set up by service users at the Barrhead Centre, a day centre for adults with additional support needs. The club is a unique cycle and repair project staffed by adults who attend the centre.

Activities available at the centre 

Service users have received training so that, under supervision, they can fit tyres, repair punctures, service bikes and run a safety check for a small fee. They also sell used and reconditioned cycles and new and used parts as well as hiring bikes to the public.  Thousands of bikes have been restored and offered for re-sale, and many have been donated to charities and to families/children that are down on their luck.

We accept unwanted bicycles at any time of the year and also accept trade-ins for your old bikes as part payment.

All work is carried out to a high standard, being overseen and checked by a member of staff trained with a Velotech qualification at Platinum level.

All customers are made to feel very welcome and we are pleased to offer you any advice or guidance within our limits.
