Reconditioned Bikes with Kingston Eco-op

WHO:
Kingston Eco-op is a social enterprise that offers training and development to vulnerable adults and volunteers through the refurbishment and recycling of bicycles and other workshop activities.

WHAT:
Their activities fall into two specific workshop areas; refurbishment and recycling of bicycles, and packing services. No prior experience is required, but an interest in bicycles or mechanics is useful if you are interested in the refurbishment/recycling. They also sell a range of refurbished second-hand bicycles.

RESTRICTIONS:
No Restrictions.

WHERE:
For the time being, their bike workshop is closed whilst they seek new premises. However, they aim to be open again very shortly, but unfortuantely cannot take any bike donations at the moment.

If you require any further information, please call bike workshop manager Jonathan on 07391 460963 or email bikes@kingstoneco-op.org.uk

WHEN:
When open, their hours are Tuesday-Friday from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Training workshops typically run on Tuesdays and Fridays.

HOW MUCH:
Refurbished bicycles cost from £40 to over £400 depending on model; call to see what's in stock. Placements for their packing or bicycle refurbishment/recycling service are priced at £25 for a half day, and £50 for a full day.

CONTACT DETAILS:
For more information, please contact Jonathan on 07391 460963 or email bikes@kingstoneco-op.org.uk.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
