If you’ve been to the Edinburgh Bike Station recently, you’ll have noticed that we are in the middle of making major changes to the layout of the workshop. In a few weeks time, we’ll be opening up a new display space for week-round bike sales and extending the space available for our popular Fix Your Own Bike sessions. To accommodate the work, our opening hours have been reduced.
While this renovation work is going on, the stock of bicycles available for the Saturday bike sales is not as big as usual. If you can't find what you want this week, please come back soon, as this shortage of bicycles is only temporary. Once the work is finished, the new display space will mean that we can put bicycles on sale as soon as they are fixed by our mechanics. The Bike Station will be open for sales six days per week once the work is complete.
We will also be extending the space available for our ever-popular Fix Your Own Bike sessions and running them for longer. For a small fee you can rent a work stand to work on your own bicycle, with a professional mechanic and expert volunteers to advise and show you what to do. Plus, we'll have dedicated teaching space upstairs on the mezzanine for Weldtech and other courses. If you don't want to get your hands dirty, our repair service reopens at the same time as the new display area – reasonably priced repairs using recycled parts where appropriate.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT – WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN OUR NEW WORKSHOP SOON!
