Welcome to Transition Southampton

MOTHERLOAD is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote. We are showing it at October Books in collaboration with Southampton Cargo Bikes and with sponsorship from the City Council. For more information see our Bike2Basics page or book via Eventbrite. Meanwhile, BIKE BIKE REVIVAL is nearly over: Last chance for half price cycle tuition! Contact Eleanor at Sound Cycling, quoting BBR2019.

Ratproof composting
We are trialling 2 options for rat-proofing and seek volunteers who have a demonstrable rat problem in their compost bin! We have one slatted plastic bin available – free, but we would appreciate a donation towards our cost. See our Waste and composting page for more information
