London Bike Kitchen WOO YEAAAH

5 Mar

The London Bike Kitchen, an  “open DIY workshop” in Hoxton, has just opened shop! Bike kitchens started out in California (see here (SF) and here (LA)) as a place where cyclists can learn how to repair their bikes, while providing community and youth programs, space for women and trans folk, and a place for reuse and recycling. They typically run by charging a small membership/stand-use fee. Other similar places in the UK for Pedaller’s Arms in Leeds and the Birmingham Bike Foundry. Though not specifically of the ‘bike kitchen’ ethos, they charge a small amount to go towards tools, parts, mechanics and space to better the local and cycling community.

"I went to the London Bike Kitchen with a clunker and came out with this!"

The London Bike Kitchen is located at 28 Whitmore Rd N1 5QA.
