The Social Cycle

Feel like you could do with a healthy dose of Social Vitamin C (Company)? Come along to our weekly workshop for a little bit of tea and tinkering...

***Our Social Cycle workshop is currently on hold. If you’ve been to this workshop before and would like to hear from someone at BBP, please email us on***

Here’s how it works…

The Social Cycle is a weekly workshop bringing adults together in a fun and relaxed environment. We fix bikes, we drink tea, we chat and have fun. We offer a healthy dose of Social Vitamin C (Company!) by providing the space for people to come together in a relaxed, friendly, nonjudgmental environment. Many of the bikes we fix go to support the Project’s Earn-a-Bike programmes.

This workshop is free of charge and no booking is required. If you are working on your own bike, there may be a charge for new and used parts.

The Social Cycle is open to anyone who feels they would benefit from a healthy dose of Social Vitamin C. If you, or someone you know, would like to come along and get involved, please contact

To find out more about our Social Cycle programme, watch our short film ‘Tea & Tinkering’, made by Touchpaper Productions.

By coming to this workshop, you are agreeing to our Terms & Conditions.

“It makes my Fridays! I know I’m coming to a peaceful environment with good teachers who’ll show me how to use the right tools. They’re very understanding and let me get on with it and make my own mistakes. I get more from this than I ever expected to. I was a 4×4 driver, but now I love to cycle.” Justin
