We are  a not-for-profit Community Interest Company

We do loads of bikey stuff with the aim of getting people to ride bikes more often and learn how to look after them too

We also use bikes as a way of engaging, educating and enriching the whole community

Do you know anyone who needs some retail experience or would just enjoy a few hours volunteering in our shop? We are on the look out for friendly customer serviced focused individuals to help in our shop Mon - Sat, even if just for a few hours. No bike fixing skills needed just a willingness to help people in store. ...

SAD NEWS: Unfortunately a green M-trax mountain bike with grey forks was stolen from the shop today. A hooded man just grabbed it and cycled off, no chance of us catching him. A bit disheartening as we work really hard to help the local community get access to bikes. We'll try not to let the few spoil it for the many! If anyone see's this bike please get in touch. ...

We're VERY lucky to have got the bike back! All thanks to the local community keeping an eye out until it was spotted round the corner. 🙌 Heart goes out to all the un-retrieved stolen bikes! And thank you for the supportive comments, means alot 😀

Sad to hear hope the person gets court

I’m so sorry this has happened. It’s upsetting considering you are helping the community. Be safe.

Aweful . If he had walked in and explained he needed a bike but Could not afford one I am sure you lot would of helped him.

Sorry to hear that. We also had bikes stolen 2 weeks ago.
