Community Bikes – under construction

Community Bikes is a new bicycle project based in West Norwood.

We aim to encourage cycling and to provide bicycle related services to the local community.

We are co-located with the  ground-breaking Community Shop  behind the Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre at Vale Street.

We are currently bringing into use a piece of land behind the recycling facility which had been abandoned for many years – building a shed/workshop and storage sheds for spare bicycle parts.

Community Bikes’ Muhammed working on our recycled workshop /shed.

Our plan is to respond to local community feedback in providing bicycle related services including :

  • repair bikes.
  • provide cycle maintenance training (especially for young people).
  • provide volunteering opportunities.
  • recycle bikes for the local community.
  • send bikes to Africa.
  • develop a bike share / hire scheme.

If you are interested in getting involved or have any ideas for our project please get in touch via the contact form.
