Stewart Vanns and Matt Beale-Collins formed Community Cycleworks in 2012 in answer to the problem of many children regularly complaining they couldn’t take part in the free Bikeability training and not being able to cycle as much as they wanted due to either, not having a bike or their bike being broken and them or their parents not having the skills and confidence to carry out basic repairs. Coupled with the ‘throw away’ culture, which saw many bikes being discarded unnecessarily that could be refurbished easily with some second hand parts. This spurred us on to create an organisation to work with young people and give them a safe space to learn repair skills for themselves, use second hand parts to keep costs low and give them access to an exciting programme of varied cycling activities to broaden their horizons and inspire them to cycle more.
