June 2016 – Hackney Bike Workshops dates + we are on a volunteer quest!


Where is 2016 ending up? It is quickly disappearing, in between spells of good weather and cold, rainy days which made us think of October! Will June be The Summer Month this year? Don’t wait for the sun to come out: fix your bike now so you are ready to pedal as you tan!

The dates for our June workshops are:

  • Tuesday 7th June – Hackney City Farm, 7-9PM
  • Wednesday 15th June – Clapton Park URC at The Round Chapel, 7-9PM
  • Tuesday 21st June – Hackney City Farm, 7-9PM

Do arrive as early as you can to ensure we can help you. Contact us in advance if you have any queries!


Hackney Bike Workshop is on a quest for new volunteer mechanics!

If you already know how to fix your bike, come along to help out with our workshops! It is a great opportunity to cement your skills and perhaps to pick up a few news one, and we are a fun bunch, if we can say so ourselves. So, come along anyway!

Also, we now offer bike fitting advice, on a simple Pay What You Can basis. Just as having the right posture improves your overall health and wellbeing , Cycling on a bike that fits you properly will give you a better ride and reduce discomfort, pain and even injury. Fitting your bike to your body will ensure a better ride, fix current issues and avoid future problems! People have done it already have walked away very happy and have left us very positive reviews of the new service: book your spot via email!

We may be all volunteers but we are surely enthusiastic: we do not receive any regular contribution towards our running costs, and we must pay ourselves for rent and tools. We would really appreciate if you could donate generously on the night!
