Bikeworks is a not for profit social enterprise based on the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Our mission is to change lives using the power of the bicycle. Our three core objectives are: to build a more diverse cycling community; improve mechanical skills; and support businesses to be greener through the promotion of cycling.
As a social enterprise, we generate income through our trading activities:
• Team Building Challenges
• Cycle Maintenance Courses
• Cycle Instructor Training Courses
The surplus generated from these activities goes back into providing free-to-access inclusive community cycling initiatives, such as our drop-in style All Ability Clubs, where ~3,000 people with disabilities and carers attend our regular club sessions for free across London, accessing specialist cycles and our skilled team of Instructors
