BIG BIKE REVIVAL 2019
Want to cycle but unsure whether your bike is safe, prefer to cycle with others, or need a bit of tuition to feel more confident? Join us for Big Bike Revival 2019 with free bike checks, led rides, events and even half price tuition sessions to help get you and your bike back on the road. See our Bike2Basics page for more information. And don’t forget our Big Bike Celebration on 20th July which includes bike repairs during and after the St Denys Repair Cafe.

Our main current projects are the regular Repair Cafes and Bike Repair workshops, but we are involved in many other projects. See the projects tab in top menu for details. As we rebuild our site there will be more projects showing. If you would like to get involved – or would like to start up a new project please get in touch.
We held our AGM on Tues 14th May. Attendees heard about projects around the city and mingled over shared food. We also saw the results of our “new rat-proof composting” project. We re-elected our Co-chairs Angela, Si and Mark and welcomed new faces to join our existing team on the committee. Watch this space!
