Cycling in September ❤️
The weather has turned - and you know what that means - time to CLEAN YOUR DISGUSTINGLY FILTHY CHAIN.
It's never too late to geek out on something new. Why not take a class at LBK to build some new synapses for your brain? Gain some empowerment, plus a happy bike (win - win!) #nevernotlearning
Yeah, I'm lookin at you
Two things of note:
1) Don't behave like a manic car driver when you're on canal towpaths - they aren't rat runs for cyclists. If you need to get somewhere quickly, use the roads. Don't like the roads? Campaign for better ones with the London Cycling Campaign.
2) We are still getting evicted in January 2020 but we can't move until after March 2019 if we want to take advantage of this break clause we've been offered. So if you know of any workshop spaces going next year, we're all ears. It's also looking more likely we'll need to partner with another organisation in order to be able to afford rent - if you know of one, please get in touch.

LBK Member Francis O. reviews his BYOB class from the summer In June 2016 I completed a Build Your Own Bike Day at the London Bike Kitchen. The bike that resulted from that day has become the most important in my stable. Here’s why. In the weeks leading up to the build, I’d spoken to mechanic Seb about the bike I wanted. He then picked out a used frame that he thought would fit the bill. We also specced out components - some spares from my shed at home, some bits salvaged from the shelves of LBK and some new...
