We are busy looking for new premises and will keep all our supporters up to date through this website and our Facebook page. If you know of a building that may be of interest to us then pop by and let us know! Alternatively you can email us on info@readingbicyclekitchen.org

NO BIKE DONATIONS - Unfortunately until we have new premises we cannot accept any donations of bikes or parts as we have nowhere to store them and nowhere to then properly commit time to refurbishing them. We recommend looking at other potential happy recipients until we're back and avoid landfill where possible.  Alternatively come and see us to fix it up then gift it to someone who might need it. Reuse, refurbish and recycle!!


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. 

OPENING TIMES

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.
