Bikeworks is a social enterprise using bicycles and cycling as a tool to tackle social and environmental challenges at a community level. Based in Bethnal Green but with other centres in London, Bikeworks focuses on cycling as a positive tool to aid the community while also offering great bikes for sale as well as full servicing and repairs
From the Bethnal Green shop, Bikeworks offers a full range of adult and kids bikes – both new and refurbished at a range of prices. Not only that but they will help you source and buy any parts or accessories you may need to make your ride perfect.
They run a bike repair club for people who have the skills but not the tools or workspace to maintain their ride. Bikeworks professionals are also on hand to help with any tricky procedures.
Other courses such as confidence courses for beginners through to experts and employment courses that are run by Bikeworks can be accessed through both Bethnal Green and the other centres. See their website for more information.
Aside from giving bike owners the space to repair their own bicycles, for those who have fewer skills and possibly less time, Bikeworks can offer a full service and repair of any bicycle at a reasonable cost. It is worth noting here that as a not-for-profit, any and all money is put straight back into the project to do more positive works in the community.
In addition to the community projects and bike repairs and sales, Bikeworks also team up with businesses to help them become greener, more sustainable and cycle friendly and as a not-for-profit social enterprise all work completed with Bikeworks helps businesses achieve CSR objectives.
Bikeworks has two other sites in London – Leytonstone and Bikeworks West – that are not bike shops but instead they offer training courses and community programmes. Check out the website and get in touch directly for more information.
You’ll find the guys from Bikeworks at lots of different events across the city throughout the summer. Check out their News & Events page to find out where.
