About us

What is DCCP?

Durrington Community Cycle Project C.I.C. (DCCP) is wholly charitable organisation set up to provide and maintain a fully equipped cycle workshop for free use by the community with the support of volunteer skilled mechanics.

A C.I.C. is a Community Interest Company limited by guarantee and regulated by the C.I.C. Regulator to ensure DCCP carries out its stated charitable obligations.

What do we do?

  • Offer the young, un-employed and low-income participants as well as the wider community, access to free use of donated bicycles as a means of sustainable transport.
  • Encourage a hands-on approach to cycle ownership by giving basic maintenance know-how to participants, as they would be expected to fix their own bikes or prepare a donated one for themselves or others with the guidance of volunteer skilled mechanics.
  • Provide participants with a fully equipped cycle workshop to enable all levels of repair to be carried out.
  • Wherever possible, provide recycled parts from donated bikes to participants. However, some new parts may have to be purchased by the participants.
  • Seek out and recycle donated bikes / parts.
  • Economically repair donated bikes and offer them for sale to the community at reasonable prices to fund DCCP.
  • Encourage cycling as a lifestyle activity and a sustainable means of transport in the community and surrounding area.

I took my girlfriend's bike in to be looked at and Mark was really helpful, he gave me loads of tips and replaced a few bits.I'll definitely be going back in the future. What the guys are doing here is incredible and as a community we are lucky to have them to help  people who need bikes.Couldn't recommend them enough.

Very friendly people,helped my son for 2 hrs to fix various issues with his bike. Now runs like a dream and my son is very proud that he was able to fix it himself with some help. Thank you!

Drove from Dorset to DCCP today to pick up a bike I bought. Well what an amazing place doing amazing things. So many bikes to choose and a great variety.  Very helpful staff and look forward to buying from them again.

What a great place! These guys & girls really know their stuff & go way above & beyond a service that you'd pay for. They spent over an hour sorting my son's bike for FREE, I only paid for parts. My son learnt loads too. So lucky to have this in Worthing & will be back with my other son & his bike. Thanks very, very much DCCP.

Very helpful,Knowledgeable and friendly. I only went in for some help with my chain and together we sorted the chain, brakes and tyres. I've learnt a lot about maintaining and fixing my bike as well.

Many thanks to Ian and Chris for helping me sort my bike out this Saturday. By my standards this was major surgery,they got me to work with them to replace the triple chainwheel, the sprocket set and chain, then we did the brake adjustment.Anyone getting back on an old bike should visit the cycle project because no matter how careful a rider you are, the bike needs to function properly. These guys have infinite knowledge and patience ensuring safe riding.

Many thanks Mark for fixing my bike this morning and giving it a service for me. It was a daunting task of replacing the rear inner tube,you made it look so easy taking the rear wheel off, a task i feel i now could do on my own..........ish. Talking me through each procedure gave me a bit more understanding of bike maintenance. I thought I'd need a new bike,but mine was saved from the scrap heap to ride another day!

Overall a Fantastic service, Very friendly and helpful team and well worth a visit. And to think that it's run by volunteers too.

Thank you Mark.

Brilliant little gem of a place! Helped my 2 sons with a gear issue on their bikes that i couldn't sort out, also decided that the brake handle on one of the bikes wasn't safe so changed that as well.
