Bike2Basics

Bike Repairs and Maintenance

Find us for free minor bike repairs at Repair Cafe in Freemantle Baptist Church, Testwood Rd the church hall at Freemantle URC- first Saturday of the month and St Deny’s Community Centre 3rd Saturday of every other month (Jan/Mar etc).
Also learn to maintain your own bike at Southampton Bike Kitchen – every Wednesday, 7-9pm at The Hub Cycleworks:  www.southamptonbikekitchen.wordpress.com/

Our bike2basics team offer bike checks, repairs and maintenance at repair cafes and sometimes at other events or venues around the city. We would like to expand our service with more volunteers and have recently been awarded a grant from Southampton City Council to help us do this. If you are interested in volunteering with us as a bike mechanic (all levels of skill welcome) please come along to one of our repair cafes or contact Ruth Magennis at ruth.magennis@cyclinguk.orgto find out more.

Film: Motherload

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.” As part of Cycle September, Transition Southampton and Southampton Cargo Bikes screened MOTHERLOAD at October Books. Thanks to sponsorship from Southampton City Council, we were able to offer FREE tickets!
