The Bristol Bike Project

Bike Kitchen

Bike Kitchen is running every Monday and Thursday evening in May 2024! From June onwards it will return to just Thursday evenings.

Here’s how it works

Come and take advantage of our fully equipped workshop with professional work stands and a comprehensive set of tools to help you tackle any problem. We also have wide range of new and used parts available to buy.

The workshop is coordinated by an experienced mechanic. There is a limit to the amount of help we can offer, particularly when we’re busy, so this workshop is only suitable for those with some experience. We have plenty of books and access to the internet if you would like to follow a tutorial.

This is a drop-in workshop – no booking required. If it’s busy, you may have to wait until a stand is free, or come back another week.

Our shop shutters will be closed. The entrance to the community workshop is around the corner at the rear of the shop, towards the bottom of Seymour Road (Stapleton Rd end) – you’ll spot the sign on the wall.

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

Come along to Raise the Saddle


Mondays and Thursdays in May 2024. Thursdays only from June onwards.

6.00pm – 9.00pm

These sessions are drop-in, no need to pre-book!

We are limiting the number of people in the community workshop to a maximum of 8 including volunteers. This means we’ll be operating on a first come, first served basis and you may need to wait outside or come back another week if we’re at capacity. Please be understanding!

We expect that everyone who isn’t medically exempt brings and wears a face mask during the session for the health and reassurance of everyone attending.

  • Up to 1 hour: £7
  • Up to 2 hours: £12
  • Up to 3 hours: £15

Tea and coffee are available for a donation.

"I have recently been building a bike from scratch and their Thursday bike kitchen sessions have been beyond helpful! The staff are super helpful and offer human interactions, I always feel valued as a customer. Their morals also help define the good they do, as they treat every body equally and have an open hand for the more vulnerable." Jake
