A total of 28 kids from low income homes in north of the city have been given the chance to trade in their run-down bikes, and get a 'new' bike in return.
The Glasgow Bike Shop scheme, named The Bike Station, takes the old bikes and refurbishes them to sell or give to other children in need.
The lucky youngsters selected for the event yesterday were chosen from schools throughout Glasgow, after submitting their applications given out by The Bike Station to local schools.
After receiving their refurbished bike, Dr Bike was on hand to teach them more about cycling. The mechanic showed them how to look after their new wheels, as well as delivering some bike skill sessions.
Dr Bike entertained the kids, providing arts and crafts activities as well as face painting for the children.
The kids gathered over two days, with some receiving their bikes at Eastfield Park and others at Broadholm Street.
Gregory Chauvet, boss of The Glasgow Bike Station, said he was delighted to help get children back to cycling, rather than putting financial strain on the parents or allowing the children to be excluded.
He said: "When children go even short periods of time without a bicycle they lose interest and the whole activity of cycling can be absent from their lives forever and impact their health.
"Keeping them on a bike will give them a long lasting relationship with cycling and its social and environmental benefits."
The Bike Station charity is running throughout Scotland with branches in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth all taking part. It is the country's largest bicycle recycling company, and takes in nearly 10,000 bikes a year.
The aim of the new venture is to promote cycling across different communities, and encourage everyone to get involved through bike swaps throughout the year.
Since starting with a stall at The Barras Market in 2010, the shop now takes in more than 4500 bikes a year. It has also been working to help the environment with their latest venture 'A Better Way To Work'.
With funds from the Climate Challenge fund, the group is aiming to help those who are trying to come up with sustainable ways to get to their jobs, such as cycling, walking and car sharing.
This move has received £446,000 worth of backing from the Scottish Government.
The Glasgow Bike Shop has received several awards for its charity work since opening, including winning the award for contribution to the environment at the Inspiring City Awards.
Mr Chauvet is pleased with the work the scheme has done, but hopes for further success with continued public support.
He said: "We rely heavily on donations and have been overwhelmed by people's generosity. Continued support will allow us to organise regular Bike Swaps and other events to help enable future generations of cyclists."
The Bike Shop has a number of events throughout the year such as a planned Christmas Giveaway.
The Glasgow branch of the charity is based in Haugh Road in the city's West End.
