A bicycle kitchen is a community bike project that provides a space where cyclists can get access to workstands and good quality tools, along with experienced mechanics to help them do everything on their bike from simple maintenance to a complete rebuild.

If you have a bike that needs attention and don’t stock a range of tools at home (who does?!) then come and see us and we can help you to do a variety of work.

If you know what you’re doing then we will leave you to it, but if you need our help then just ask and one of our volunteers will show you what to do and get you going.
