Welcome to Reading Bicycle Kitchen, a Do-It-Yourself bicycle workshop where you are in charge. Whether you have a bike that's been sitting in the garage for years and you want to get cycling again, or just need some advice and access to tools then you have come to the right place. 


Drop-in Sessions:

You bring the bike, we've got the work stands, tools and mechanics to show you how to fix up your bicycle.

Currently on hold - see above pop up sessions.
