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.
