Come along with your bike and our volunteers will help you check and repair it so you can do it yourself in the future. We charge for new parts needed but also have loads second hand part which can be cheaper.
If working on your own bike we ask for a suggested donation of £10 per hour for your time at the workshop, although we are happy to be paid in other ways such as cake or volunteering. We also work with adults with learning difficulties at these sessions so please be patient with us.
Workshop open including Youth Bike Workshop after school. Our junior mechanics are on hand to work on recycling bikes and fixing other kids bikes, new young people always welcome to come a learn about bike maintenance and learn new skills. Do send us a message for more information about this session, they can be pretty chaotic but lots of fun.
