The Pedallers’ Arms is a place in Leeds to come and learn how to repair your bike in a friendly atmosphere. We run regular drop-in sessions and other bike related events. We are based on Mabgate Green. Our regular opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 4 – 8pm, Saturday 12 – 4pm.
Although we survive entirely from your support we are very grateful for the funding that has helped get this project started.
Even though it is hot and sunny (so we’d like to be riding) we are open this Bank Holiday Monday. If you have bike troubles or have just been cycling in the Dales come down to do some repairs.
Enjoy the Sun everyone!

Good news, if any Members of Pedallers’ Arms were thinking of joining CTC, they can now do so for a reduced price (£16), by visiting this link and entering our group membership number, just ask us for it. You don’t get the magazine but you do help CTC which is a great charity supporting cycling.
A Pedallers’ member brought in an interesting bike to the workshop a few days ago. While she was travelling around Ghana she found a bamboo bicycle workshop.

We’d really like to let more people hear about Pedallers’ Arms. We are pretty stretched for time but one way of doing it is to ask you to tell your friends about us, tell strangers about us, and interact with us on the internet. Posting reviews about us on any website, sharing links on social media and generally pushing Pedallers’ will help raise our internet profile so more people find out about us.
If you have any other ideas then let us know.

Beijing Bicycle transplants the theme of the classic Italian movie “Bicycle Thieves” to modern day China. In a city of a million bicycles Guei, a young man from the country, is making his way in the capital by working as a bicycle courier. From his wage he is gradually paying off the cost of his bike.
