21 January - Colchester Bike Kitchen


Visit CBK at its first session at 15 Queen Street in the new year.

Colchester Bike Kitchen will be moving to a new home - thanks to Firstsite they have an indoor space at 15 Queen Street, right next to their first home at the Waiting Room. Huge thanks are due to Marc and the Waiting Room community for helping them get established, not to mention Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen and Andy Woolf for sharing so much expertise, and their funders - Essex County Council, CCVS, Cycling UK and Cycle Colchester.

Opening times will stay the same (1-4pm on the first Saturday of the month, starting from 21 January) until they can get more volunteers to open more frequently.

Find out about the e-bikes he has built, his campaigning for better cycle links particularly between towns and his lobbying for ebikes to be recognised as a mobility aid. 'Getting the bus is causing me big problems, but cycling is good. Going to work by bus I’m sitting down for an hour and a half and I’d have to take painkillers before going to work, but not when I’m cycling.'
