The project involves young people and adults creating bikes to keep, from bikes that have been donated from various sources. You learn maintenance skills to restore a bike to a roadworthy condition from one that has been donated and worn out parts stripped off. You get to keep the bike at the end of the course. How cool is that?
We love this project are thrilled that it’s up and running again. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. That’s the principle.

Can we not learn a lesson from this: https://buff.ly/3ndfiRb
You could be forgiven for saying that it is like they wanted to make it fail, just to prove a point.
Is it a good idea to greatly reduce the amount of space for cars, leave the infrastructure in place for three months then decide it was a failure and dismantle it? Traffic planning management generally deems six months to a year is the required amount of time to judge success or failure.
Well done West Sussex County Council!
We are still open for Bike Fix on Fridays at the Giraffe House, Burgess Park.
It’s a little different though
- Only 2 bikes/participants in the workshop at a time
- Pre-book a free slot online
- No lingering, leave promptly at end of your session
Very excited to announce this🎉🎉
The latest round of the Build A Bike Project, run by Community Cycleworks, has been sponsored by Vistry Partnerships (building contractors for Plot 18) and Notting Hill Genesis.
