The workshop is open every Saturday between 11am-2pm & 3pm-6pm for servicing, Sundays between 12pm-2pm & 3pm-5pm for training. We can open during the week – including evenings – upon demand, we also offer popups for local partners – from simple ‘Dr Bike’ type events to full blown training workshops employing up to three fully mobile toolbenches.
Servicing operates on a first come-first served basis. We have a comprehensive selection of tools, a vast pool of knowledge and resources, all housed within an outstanding self-built workshop.
We also offer midweek hands-on Corporate Training days (helping you and your company meet CSR and KPI targets whilst simultaneously helping our community), plus upcycling workshops (a new addition) and welcome service contracts and partnerships with local businesses.
We are also able to accommodate exclusive hires and bespoke 1-2-1 training needs
And where are we? We operate within the Mobile Garden City, a wonderful community garden managed by Groundwork London, currently situated on the new Chobham Manor development within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We’ll remain here till at least Feb 2018, scheduled thereafter to move to the latest new development on the park, Clarnico Quay, an exciting new space on the East Wick and Sweetwater site, led by the brilliant team at MakeShift (Pop Brixton | Peckham Levels)
Along with the huge support from local partners, friends, family, beneficiaries, course alumni, private donors and supporters, we’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the Cycling Grants London team and Transport For London for their generous CGL Grant, without which we’d almost certainly have been unable to continue our work and the transition from a simple pilot workspace to our cutting edge off-grid workshop, with tools and a setup on par with some of the leading workshops in London
Finally, a massive thanks go out to Cloud 9 Cycles, Soho Bikes, Condor Cycles, London Bicycle Workshop and Bike Fix, consistently recognised as some of the leading workshops in the UK, also to ATG, who deliver the industry standard Cytech courses. Individually, they shared their time and knowledge, let us photograph their workshops, interview their head mechanics and ask a ton of probing (also some dumb) questions. Collectively, they have allowed us to stand on the shoulders of giants and build a workshop which has far exceeded our original expectations
