Bike Project

Blueberry Bike Project is an ongoing after hours club that meets on a Tuesday evening between 3:15 and 5pm.  The purpose of the club is two fold; to teach an individual the basics of bike mechanics in an informal, relaxed setting and also to aid in diverting bikes from the waste stream to improve the wider community.

Professionally trained mechanics donate their time to teach our trainees the ins and outs of bike maintenance, from stripping down and cleaning a salvaged bike to the complete rebuild of a bike worthy to go out on the roads again.  When our bikes are completed they will be donated out into the community to those who most need cheap and effective transport.
