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.
