The bike adventures don’t need to end when you’re no longer a kid… so today we’re announcing the first of some evening bicycle adventures around Great Yarmouth.

On Thursday 30th June at 6.30pm you’re invited to our first pedalling potter ending at a venue where we can all enjoy a pint… we’re thinking maybe The Empire?

Whatever your bike, whether you ride slow or slower these rides will be a welcoming place to safely ride in a group and enjoy an evening by the sea. The ride will be supported by to experienced ride leaders and who’ll take the group on a tried and tested route to a celebrated watering hole.

We’ll meet on Estcourt Road in North Yarmouth just off Northgate Street and end in central Yarmouth and the philosophy of the ride is that nobody is left behind. So if you fancy an evening pottering paced pedal adventure then come say hello.

Big thanks to Cycling UK for making these rides possible.

Does your bike need some TLC?

Summer is on its way and we’d love to help you get your bike ready for pedal powered adventures. This Saturday we’re excited to be back at Marlpit Community Centre with the wonderful Norwich Eco Hub offering bike repairs.

We’ll be offering free repairs on a first come first served basis at this location that’s a short leafy hop along Marriott’s Way from the city centre.

What’s more while your bike is being fixed there are Eco-Inspired Activities for Children and Green Living Advice for you to distract yourself with: https://facebook.com/events/s/green-bunnies/386420496242636/

Hope to see you there 🚲❤️🌍

02/04/2022

April’s here and the bicycles are itching to be ridden. We’ll be fixing for free any bicycles that can make it to Marlpit Community Centre thanks to the wonderful Norwich Eco Hub on Saturday 9th April 🚲❤️🌍

25/03/2022

LAST CALL: We have a couple of places left on tomorrow’s free introduction to cycle maintenance!

Send us a DM, and email to [email protected] or a call on 07963676612 to grab one of the last remaining spots 🚲🧡🌍

Big thanks as always to Bicycle Links for use of their Anglia Square space and Cycling UK for the support!

We have one last opportunity to learn some basic bike fixing in the calendar for now… and it’s filling up quickly 🚲💚🌍

Join us on Saturday 26th March at Anglia Square, bring your bike, and together let’s get ready for the cycling year ahead. We’ll be covering some basic cycle maintenance stuff along with sharing tips to show your bike some TLC throughout the year.

Book by emailing us on [email protected] calling 07963 676612 or sending us a Facebook message.

The session will be 1pm until 4pm, you’ll be able to work on your own bike to help you become more familiar with looking after it and it’s all made possible by the wonderful Cycling UK and Bicycle Links.

05/03/2022

Bike tools… they can be expensive and if you’re buying them to service just one bike it’s likely they won’t get a lot of use. This is why bike kitchens are important!

On Wednesday 16th March we’ll be hosting a bike kitchen at Anglia Square, offering you access to tools, a workstand and the advice of your expert mechanics from 6.30pm to 9pm. This isn’t a cycle maintenance course… though there will be bits of tuition and guidance offered to those who take part; so it’s an offer for those who already have a bit of bike fixing experience.

The number of workstands is limited and will be offered out on a first come first served basis, so come hang out, fix your bike and maybe even learn a new thing or two.

We’re delivering this event in collaboration with Bicycle Links with the kind support of Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival project 🚲💚🌍

24/02/2022

Spring is coming… and the temptation to go for a pedal powered pootle is just around the corner. Get yourself ready for when the temptation strikes with some bicycle TLC this weekend.

We’ll be teaching some simple maintenance tips for keeping your bike running beautifully throughout the year and making sure your bike it ready to go by offering basic repairs. See you Saturday 🚲💚🌍

Bring your bike to Marlpit Community Centre this Saturday afternoon for a free check.
If your bike has been in storage all winter, this is a great time to have the tires inflated, the chain oiled, and check where that strange squeaky noise is coming from. And if you already cycle every day, My Bike Repair CIC will have expert tips to make your ride safer and more fun.

BIG NEWS: Our Dr Bike is on its summer break from its regular Thursday slot St. George's Theatre Great Yarmouth and so we won’t be there today or for the next few weeks. Thank you so much for all your support and positivity. We fixed hundreds of bikes over the last few months and made some really valuable connections that will be super useful as we grow what we’re doing in our home town of Great Yarmouth.

Speaking to folk we’ve been able to pick up some really clear things that people would like to see going on in GY and so one task for the summer is exploring how we can make those things happen. So watch this space for more news of GY projects and services launching soon.

Have a great summer 🚲💚🌍

Cycle Maintenance Training - Certificate of Achievemant

SHINY: It’s been a week of new things… we kicked off a new set of our youth social action bike project sessions with the wonderful SYEP on Wednesday, and perfectly timed, the certificates the young people will earn have arrived!

These shiny certificates are given out by us to any young person we observe competently completing a basic repair on a puncture, brakes, gears and wheel bearings during our courses. In fact we’re planning to start some courses for adults and young people in Great Yarmouth as well soon.

Life isn’t always about awards and certificates… so it was interesting talking to some of the young people on our new course on Wednesday and hearing how much they’d love a Saturday job in a bike shop. They’re struggling to get jobs because they have nothing to show that they have some skills. Hopefully these certificates, backed up by our experience of their abilities, can help them on their first step into a career in some kind of engineering related trade 🚲💚🌍

There is something so exciting about having a plan, building it and then having an opportunity to use it to teach people new stuff!

Last week the awesome young people on our SYEP bike project stripped down wheel bearings. They did an awesome job and so this week it’s onto headsets... and we’ve built just the thing for them to work on. We built these training rigs to be less cumbersome than a bike and better behaved than the old rusty bikes we’re renovating. We’re conscious that it’s important when learning a new skill to be doing that on well behaved bikes that do what they’re meant to do.

We feel so privileged to have the support of the to make all of this positive mischief possible. Our hope is that after these courses we can take the project we’ve created out to even more Norfolk young people.

Okay so tomorrow is Dr Bike day again in Great Yarmouth at St. George's Theatre Great Yarmouth and we’re weather watching as usual. We’d love to see you and fix your bike tomorrow... we’re there from 9am until 3pm and maybe early is the safer bet in terms of missing the rain. Repairs are on a first come first served basis and small repairs are free of charge.

This will be our forth week in this great spot and over the last four weeks there has definitely been a star tool that we’ve been using a whole lot.... it doesn’t look much but it is magic in making sure the bikes of Great Yarmouth have working gears. That said, our town is pretty flat and so I get the impression most of us are quite bemused by when we’d actually use most of our bike’s gears... though it’s nice to have the option right!

We reckon we can all be forgiven for not using all of life’s gears over this last year. We’re very much looking forward to a time when life feels full of options again and we’re very much preparing for that moment right now as we explore what a GY bike project could look like. So even if you don’t have a bike that needs a fix we welcome anyone who wanted to drop by for a chat and a discussion around what things you’d love to see going on in our town.

Big thanks to Cycling UK for making these sessions possible!

Our trolley of Dr Bike wonder delivered everything we needed for a successful first day of fixing the bikes in our town!!

It’s an announcement day today... whoop whoop! We’re excited to share that we’ll be supporting people here in Great Yarmouth to keep cycling through lockdown with a whole bunch of Pop-up Dr Bike Sessions at St George’s Theatre Plaza!

They kick off on Thursday 25th February from 9am until 1pm. They’ll be weekly until the end of March at least. The sessions will be COVID safe... so we’ll be all in masks, gloves and big coats... it is still winter after all. We’ll be offering all kinds of basic bike repairs for no charge so that your wheels can keep on rolling towards the spring. First come first served... so we look forward to seeing you there.

These sessions have been made possible by the wonderful Cycling UK and their fabulous event support. We’re going to be using these sessions to also start the conversation with you about what bike things you’d love to see in the town... so we can try to make them happen through our Community Cycling Club. See you on Thursday!

In our experience the curious thing about loneliness is that it can so often be tackled by simple ways of reaching out... it doesn’t require big expensive things or complicated algorithms... a cuppa tea, a walk or a bike ride.

We’ve always loved Sprowston Youth Engagement Project and so it’s an honour to be inviting young people in Sprowston to get involved with a youth social action project we’re delivering in partnership with them in the new year. The plan is to work with young leads to plan a bike project that can help tackle loneliness in the neighbourhood and the city.

It’s all funded by as part of their work with the Fund, supporting the aims of the campaign to inspire social action in young leaders to make a difference in their community... on this occasion through bikes.

If you’re a young person living in Sprowston interested to know more then get in touch. It would be great to have you involved in the new year.

Bikes are like bike rides really... things that can change course opening up new adventures. As we prepare for our Youth Social Action project with Sprowston Youth Engagement Project we’re putting the call out for any neglected or forgotten bikes languishing in the garages of Norfolk. We want to change the course of your discarded bicycles life.

In the spring we’re going to be working with a group of young leaders to breath new life into any old forgotten bike donations we receive so that they can be put to good use in tackling loneliness.

Bikes are almost endlessly fixable making them a pretty perfect ‘vehicle’ for teaching young people about fixing stuff and basic engineering. We can’t wait to be sharing pictures of the journeys we take the bicycle donations we receive on and the people that take part in that journey.

If you have a neglected bike in Norfolk that needs a new life then help us spread the love and get in touch
