Frome Community Bike Project came about after the successful running of the bike jumble in support of Frome’s Missing Links. After four years of jumbles and many hours of tinkering with bikes we realised that there was an appetite in Frome for recycling second hand bikes and we wanted to support people to cycle more and enjoy the great outdoors using bikes. We have just finished a successful crowdfunding campaign to help launch the project, and are moving to a new phase – lots of admin, followed quickly by putting buildings on site and getting the workshop launched!
If you’re interested in helping with any of this, from building to tinkering with bikes then we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch

Spanner wielder in chief
