Want to know what we are currently working on? Check out the projects below for current and upcoming community projects:
We are currently working at Enstruct trainings Vision Project teaching youg people who are outside of mainstream education how to fix, build and maintian bikes. On Tuesdays we work on a one-to-one basis and on Wednesdays we work with a few small groups, on both days we are teaching everything from workshop safty to bike rebuilds.
Currently students who have been part of the project for a while are working on Re-cycling bikes, this involces taking them apart, re-painting the frame and then re-assembling and restoring all the parts on the bike. We rely on donated bikes to help us do this so if you have an old bike you would like to donate please get in touch.
For the last 3 years we have been running repair sessions for children at Mowmacre playground in Mowmacre hill, this has been free for all the children who come to sessions at playground.
