The Bike Hive in Alexandra Park, Manchester provides a buzzing and thriving home to a growing number of community bike projects. Anyone is welcome. We run open public sessions helping people learn to ride a bike or fix a bike. We run fun community cycling events. We lead kids' cycling sessions. And provide access to affordable bikes to buy or rent.
In March we were sadly broken into and our entire fleet of 20 adult bikes was taken. Given the low level of security in place these bikes were not insured. Without the bikes the bulk of our activities cannot take place.
We have big ambitions to not only replace what was taken but to grow and expand. We need funds to help us realise our dream and secure our future.
With your support we can replace the stolen bikes, increase breadth of resources we have on offer, improve security, cover insurance costs and pay for part time co-ordinator who can help take the project forward in a sustainable way.
