About this project

Birmingham Bike Foundry is a workers’ co-operative. We promote cycling activities and recycle discarded bikes.
We offer maintenance and cycle training to members of the public, schools and businesses. Our trained mechanics refurbish donated bicycles and sell them at affordable prices. Every Thursday evening we run our Tool Club where you can come along and use our workshop and tools for a small annual fee.
We aim to make a healthy, fun, affordable and environmentally friendly means of transport and leisure available to as many people as we can, however possible!
We believe that cycling is an empowering activity that is part of the solution to Birmingham’s transport and health challenges.
