Build a bike
The ultimate in recycling! Refurbish a donated bike with one of Community Cycleworks super mechanics and learn how to repair and maintain your bike at the same time! Keep the bike at the end of the course.
Initially borne out of sheer frustration at seeing perfectly serviceable bikes being thrown away due to needing minor repairs, and having many young people saying they couldn’t take part in school Bikeability courses on offer due to not having a bike that fitted them.
These courses offer participants the opportunity to refurbish a donated bike for themselves or a family member, through a structured four-lesson programme. These are offered to small groups from our Burgess Park or Pop-up workshops in South East London, or at schools and youth clubs for up to 12 students.
The courses promote cycling, recycling and re-use and challenges the throw away culture that is endemic in today’s society.
“Billy had not engaged with school in over 3 months and since the course he has attended every day. Thank you and the CCW team for your great work”
