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

Some of you have responded to our calls and have started volunteering, but attendance is a bit sporadic so we are still looking for 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!

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!
