What We Do

The Wee Spoke Hub is a welcoming workshop space where our volunteers and mechanic will help you learn the skills to take care of your bike.

Tools and expertise are provided and participants are welcome to donate what they can.

Simply bring your bike along to one of our Fix Your Own Bike workshops on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 5-8pm, and our team will check it over and guide you in any repairs it needs.

We also have a range of refurbished bikes and used parts for sale.

As a member of SHRUB Coop you get discounts on parts.

We helped over 450 people to fix their own bikes in 2018 and the Wee Spoke Hub is currently supporting the community to cycle over 5000 miles each week.
