Reading Bicycle Kitchen

A bicycle kitchen is a community bike project that provides a space where cyclists can get access to workstands and good quality tools, along with experienced mechanics to help them do everything on their bike from simple maintenance to a complete rebuild.

The bicycle is a truly remarkable piece of technology and represents the most affordable and environmentally-friendly method of transportation beyond walking. Like all forms of technology it requires some simple maintenance to continue to operate effectively, but for many people the cost of having this done professionally is prohibitive and the lack of knowledge makes doing it yourself daunting.

At RBK we believe in a collaborative community where we support each other and share facilities and knowledge to ensure that everyone has access to the tools and expertise they need regardless of wealth, gender, age, background or social status.
