These are some of the sites that acted as inspiration for what we’re trying to do.
It’s not a complete list of Bike Kitchens, or similar, sites just some of the ones we go back to. If you do want to look for a bike collective in your area check out the wiki on http://www.bikecollectives.org/ (Yes, we’re on there too).
I find this the simplest way to look for similar wonderful Community Bicycle Organisations from all over the world.
Let us know about sites that excite you.
San Francisco based, probably the leaders in community bike workshops.
LA version. “We do not buy or sell bikes, nor do we fix bikes for you. What we do is teach people to work on their own bikes” – does that sound familiar.
No prizes for where they are. We’ve had the chance to meet with some of the ABK crew and they’re running a great community organisation.
See if you can make one of their parties.
(and we love their current big space)
Sydney based we hope to share information and ideas with this leading Australian site.
This Canberra group links volunteers with the ANU, LEAD training organisation & Canberra Environment And Sustainability Rescource Centre to provides a space for community involvement and inclusion.
