Support your workshop!

In the immortal words of Kermit the frog – it ain’t easy being green. It ain’t easy being a community entreprise which focuses on teaching people the skills to fix and ride bikes rather than on profit-making either. Your financial contributions go towards paying our dedicated staff, paying rent and maintaining glorious city centre workshop for everyone to use. It all helps us get more people on bikes more often, which can only be a good thing!

  • £20 pays for one trip to recycle scrap metal, tyres and inner tubes
  • £50 pays for the induction, training and mentoring of 2 new volunteers
  • £100 pays for an experienced mechanic to run a session with one of our target groups of women, trans-gender people and people with lived experience of homelessness
  • £300 goes a long way towards covering the monthly rent on or beautiful community workshop 😉

Donations of used bikes

We are not currently accepting donations of used bikes because our workshop and off-site storage unit are full to bursting. If you have a bike which needs a good home try contacting The Bike Project, they do great work with Asylum Welcome a local refugee organisation. If your bike is in quite a sorry state you can recycle it at Redbridge Recycling Centre.
