A Byker charity is offering refurbished children's bikes from £20 over Easter.
Recyke y'Bike says it hopes the offer will encourage more children to take up cycling.
The charity was set up five years ago with the aim of recycling and reusing old bikes.
Trained mechanics refurbish cycles that are brought in before reselling them, while others are exported to Africa.
Those bikes that can't be reused are sold for scrap.
Project manager Dorothy Craw set up the charity after seeing a similar community-based project in Edinburgh.
She said: "The aim is to get more people out there cycling and see fewer bikes end up in landfill.
"This children's bike project has been hugely successful. A lot of children have come in with their parents and bought a bike.
"Every child that buys a bike gets a free Easter egg."
Parent Chris Kurji-Smith was hoping to find a new bike for his daughter Layla. He said: "It's a fantastic idea. Children grow out of their bikes so quickly.
"It's a great way to keep using bikes and to get more life out of them."
Recyke y'Bike is open Tuesday and Saturdays.
