The Bristol Bike Project

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.

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. No previous experience of working on bikes is necessary!

Many of the bikes we fix go to support the Project’s Earn-a-Bike programmes. If you are working on your own bike, there may be a charge for new and used parts.

This workshop is free of charge and no booking is required. If you, or someone you know, would like to come along or find out more then please pop in and see us or email

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
