About this project

We are British Cycling Female Friendly approved and have both male & female mechanics.

All our recycled bikes are done to the CTC Standard for the Safety of Used Bicycles. One person recycles the bicycle then test rides it. If they are satisfied it is then test ridden by a 2nd person. We also sell new/recycled parts and accessories.

Repair & service bicycles

We hold Bicycle Maintenance & Repair Workshops showing people how to maintain their own bicycles.

We have a Hire a Work Station where people pay a small hourly charge to come along and use a workstation. Whilst we will not do the repair we will give them advice.

As and when funding allows our mechanics will be trained to a minimum of Cytech Home Mechanic.

Volunteers are the backbone of our work. We are currently seeking volunteers to fill these key roles:

  • Mechanics (we will train them if they have little or no experience).
  • IT Officer who can quickly grasp various programmes like Intuit POS.
  • Fundraising Officer to organise fundraising events and apply to Trusts etc for grants.
  • Activities Officer to organise cycling promotion events.
  • Joiner/Handyman to make shelving racking etc to store parts on.
  • Recycling Officer to make items out of recycled parts, e.g. belts made from tyres, clocks made from chainrings
  • General volunteers to help out with many tasks, helping us move bikes about,  set a new workshop up etc
