Our Mission

Our Mission

Pro Bike Service C.I.C. is a bicycle training and servicing enterprise which operates within a self-built, solar-powered, fully transportable workshop, capable of being deployed on development sites to encourage, support and champion a growing number of safe cyclists.  Our social enterprise is based on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

We employ open source technologies, run our key services via a gift economy and are working towards a zero waste model of operation.   Utilising gift economics – not setting fixed prices then discounting – challenges labels that society or an individual may have about themselves, striving for equality and social integration. It also allows beneficiaries to gift and share their individual talents and resources as well as, or in exchange of, financial contributions.  The gift economy removes inability to pay for services as a barrier to entry, serving the entire community by need rather than means.  Users of both the maintenance and training services, indeed anyone so inclined, are given the opportunity to contribute by gifting in a variety of ways to Pro Bike Service.  In addition, this framework nurtures and encourages trust and allows us to receive gifts that would commonly be inaccessible to a social enterprise of our scale and size

We offer popups for local partners, from simple ‘Dr Bike’ type events to full blown training workshops, and are keen to support corporations and businesses embracing sustainable transport practices.  Our purpose built off-grid workspace allows us to offer small, highly focused teambuilding days which genuinely deliver great impact within our local area – such as our ‘Build A Bike for the Community’ programme, with corporate teams building a working bicycle for a local community member in need.  With experience in a number of creative disciplines including manufacturing, carpentry and other crafts, we are also able to offer bespoke opportunities largely unavailable elsewhere

Pro Bike Service C.I.C. was created to provide high quality bicycle maintenance services and community-based training opportunities to our local community, encouraging and supporting a growing number of cyclists to ride safely maintained bikes. Interactive workshops run throughout the year to encourage maximum engagement and everyone is welcome
