After a three week hiatus (to recharge and get a bit of time in green scenery) we are back and offering free bike fixes in the N1 (Islington) area! So far we have fixed and serviced over 250 bikes during lockdown and awesome N1-based folk have donated over £13,000 to the Qhubeka bike charity!
Qhubeka is a UK registered charity and gets children and women on bikes in South Africa and across Africa to get them better access to education, health, jobs, amenities and a brighter future. Our motto is #BicyclesChangeLives 🖐
The service is free of charge (not including parts) and if folk want to give a donation to our charity, all good! If you have a £50 Bike Repair voucher (the new government scheme) we are registered with them also now so can accept these too. We aim to turn your bike around in 24hrs or less! Certain parts can now be sourced from several distributors of many major brands, within reason.
Send me a message on here or Whatsapp on 07741536809 to book your bike in!
Here is a brief film we made with the Tour de France (we are their current lead charity) about what we do:
