Call to remove stored bikes!

Do you have a bike stored at Pedallers?

If yes, please come and collect it!

We need to clear out all the ‘project bikes’ that are stored upstairs by the end of the year.

If you have not collected your bike by Thursday 15th November, we will have to remove all remaining bikes.

All bikes left uncollected will be recycled and/or put towards a good cause.

Volunteer shortage

On Thu June 21st we will be closed due to a staff shortage.

In fact we are a little short of volunteers at Pedallers’ Arms so we’re recruiting new people. Would you be interested in an opportunity to volunteer one 4-hour shift per week, on either Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, 4 – 8pm? We’re looking for people who are:

  • Reliable: able commit to making the shift most weeks.
  • Personable: keen to impart knowledge of cycle repair to a wide range of people from many walks of life with patience.
  • Enthusiastic about the aims and ethos of Pedallers’
  • Willingness to ask other mechanics when your unsure and experience in the art of bike repair, especially at tasks commonly needed on older bikes.

Pedallers’ relies completely on volunteers and since its creation in 2010 has been 100% volunteer controlled and run. For various reasons some of our established volunteer mechanics cannot work regular shifts so we’re looking for some new people. A different group of people works on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday so it’s worth dropping-in on the shift you’re interested in to find out more, as well as having a read of our Volunteering page.

Women and Bikes!

In collaboration with The Adventure Syndicate, a few of us are organising a weekend get together/ mini-conference/ festival on the theme of Women and Bikes to take place in Leeds in April or May 2017! The Saturday will be a day of talks, workshops, stalls, food and socialising and on the Sunday we will have some group rides.

We’re currently looking at venues and dates (as our workshop doesn’t fit the bill and isn’t big enough) and starting to put together the programme. This is where you come in! We’re looking for suggestions of workshop themes, speakers, activities and so on. What would get you interested in coming along? We want to inspire seasoned riders, women who don’t cycle at the moment and everyone in between. So we’re hoping to have a programme that offers something to encourage and inspire everyone.
