Dear Pedallers’ members, supporters and visitors,
In light of the escalating COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to close Pedallers’ Arms with immediate effect. Whilst we appreciate that bike transport is especially important at this time, we have weighed up the potential costs/benefits and decided that the most responsible thing to do is close.
We are obviously not medical experts but from the evidence available we understand that the most effective way to slow the spread of the virus is by ‘social distancing’ i.e. reducing contacts with other people, to reduce the risk of virus transmission.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will reopen as soon as possible.
For the small number of people who have a bike currently stored at Pedallers, we will be in touch with you next week to arrange collection – or if you prefer you can leave it in the workshop until we reopen.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
We encourage everyone to stay safe, follow medical advice and look out for support groups which are popping up around Leeds.
If you have an questions you can email us at email@example.com, however phone calls are unlikely to be answered.
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 that are open to all. We are based on Mabgate Green.
Our regular opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 4 – 8pm (+ other events on the calender).
Although we survive entirely from your support we are very grateful for the funding that has helped get this project started.
Pedallers’ mechanics will be taking a much needed break for the holiday season.
Our last session before closing will be Thursday the 12th of December. We will then take three weeks off before reopening on Monday the 6th of January.
Enjoy your winter and stay warm!
On Friday 13th December 2019 we will be hosting a talk with Emily Chappell. This will take place 18:30 – 20:30. Due to the level of interest we will be holding this event at the Hyde Park Book Club, 27 – 29 Headingley Lane, Leeds, LS6 1BL. This event is FREE but please book a place so that we have an idea of numbers and can contact you with details of any venue changes.
Emily Chappell is an author, adventurer and advocate, known for her long-distance bicycle journeys and the words with which she shares them. Emily visited us in 2016 to share stories from her first book, What Goes Around, and this time she will tell the improbable story of how she ended up winning the 4,000km Transcontinental race across Europe, read aloud from Where There’s A Will, and answer questions about every aspect of cycling and writing books.
Unfortunately we will be closed tomorrow due to staff illness.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Pedallers’ Arms volunteers are all back from our summer break. The workshop is tidy and we are refreshed, hope you are too. If you’ve got any bike issues please come down to any of our public drop-in sessions and we will try to help. If you’ve any questions please email or ring us, we’re looking forward to helping you fix up your bike.
Pedallers’ mechanics will be taking a much needed break from the end of July until the end of August.
Our last session before closing will be Thursday the 25th of July. We will then take five weeks off before reopening on Monday the 2nd of September.
Enjoy your summer!
We are OPEN on Monday May 6th (May Day) Bank Holiday with our usual 4-8pm times, woop! Thanks very much to the Monday volunteers. On Monday 27th May (the following bank holiday) we will be closed.
The sessions have started to get a bit busier as the weather improves so try come as early as you can so we’ve time to help you get your bike fixed.
