About this project

With help and guidance from volunteer mechanics, anyone will be able to do their own repairs and perform their own maintenance. RAD Bikes will carry a large stock of used parts so you can replace defective components easily and choose new components for custom built bikes. Gap Filler is teaming up with ICECycles to provide low-cost or loan bikes to give away to those who need them. RAD bikes will also feature monthly workshops across the Summer where you can create bike 'bling', bike-sculptures and even a street-sweeper bike!

Supported by:

Gap Filler, ICECycles, Buildtech, Royal Wolf Containers.  Designed by Nic and Jess Sewell, built by volunteers.
