Senior Bicycle Mechanic

ABOUT US

Bikeworks is a social enterprise that uses cycling as a tool to tackle social and environmental challenges. Since opening up in 2006, we have been delivering innovative community cycling across London and the surrounding areas.

We use cycling to engage children, young people and adults, providing specialist support to disabled people – including people with a learning disability and mental health support needs. We also work with vulnerable young people, older people and their carers. 

Over our 14-year history, we have supported thousands of people and changed lives. We do this through delivery of our inclusive cycling clubs, accredited employment and training programs, team building challenges, public bike maintenance, cycle training and much more.

As a social enterprise, we reinvest our profits made from our commercial services back into our community programs.
