A Build a Bike sessions start with new bikes in boxes and then work from there. The tutor will teach participants how the bikes go together, and then all the knowledge they need to set the bike up, maintain it and keep it running between services. 

People building bikes

There are several positive outcomes of the courses:

  • participants are introduced to bicycle maintenance and get a taste of what it would be like to work in bike shop
  • participants learn how to maintain a bike, saving money
  • participants get a bike at the end of the course, providing them with a low cost, healthy transport option

We have run the sessions for housing associations, community groups and charities. We run regular courses for Crisis, and have had our fastest ever employment outcome: A gentleman attended the course and had signed up to work for UberEats knowing he was going to receive a bike and the knowledge to keep it running and went out to start working the evening the course finished.
