Govan Community Bike Workshop

The Govan Community Bike Workshop, 60 Shaw Street, Govan

young cyclistSet up in 2012 by Unity in the Community the Govan bike workshop is run completely by volunteers to repair and fix up bikes for destitute asylum seekers and to sell to raise funds for the project and to offer a minor repair service to the local community.

Find it just along the road from our blue charity shop in Govan.

The workshop is open:

  • Saturdays from 11.00am
  • Thursday evenings from 5.30 – 8.30pm

The Bike Project needs your support! We need donations; if you have an unwanted bicycle we will put it to good use. We’ll even take donations of broken bicycles for recycling (In fact we’ll accept any bicycle, as long as it’s not completely rusted). We also need any spare tools, so any unused spanners, wrenches, sockets, pumps donated would be a great help to us at this time.

If you would like to volunteer and get involved with the Bike Project please contact the Unity Centre.
