The bike recycling workshop is situated in unit 5 and open to Kingston Eco-op service users on Tuesdays and Fridays to recondition and repair dis-used bikes.
There are a maximum of 5 places on each day available. The workshop is linked with Kingston Cycle Campaign and the Royal Borough of Kingston's Travel Awareness Department. The session has skilled support from a trained bike mechanic for service users to learn about cycle repairs and maintenance.
There is also a full induction for service users on health and safety in using all machinery and tools and there are also opportunities for service users to meet people interested in buying reconditioned cycles from the Kingston Eco-op and develop customer service skills.
Do you have an unused bicycle in your shed or garage that you no longer want?
Would you like to help a local charity partnership project by donating your bike?
We can use bikes of all types: ladies', gents', children's, teens', traditional, modern, shoppers, racers, folders, mountain bikes.
We could possibly collect your bicycle, or you can deliver it to our workshop on Adams Industrial Estate. The entrance is off the Kingston Road between Homebase and Matalan stores.
