Kingston Eco-op Bikefest
Sunday 27 Sep 2015

WHAT:
Bike Sales: Come and see our range of second hand bicycles. All our bikes are checked by our qualified mechanics so you can be sure that your bargain is safe to ride.
Bike Jumble:We get donations of all sorts of things and over the years we’ve collected a variety of bicycle parts, some of them quite rare. New old stock Mafac anyone?
Rollapalluza: Stationary bikes for people to race each other to loud music and shouting.
RBK Go Cycle Roadshow: RBK will be there with their cycling roadshow that has been travelling around the borough of Kingston throughout the summer – this is their last event this year, so it’s bound to be special!
Sustrans Smoothie Bike:Come and make your own smoothie on Sustrans’ bike of fruityness
Dr Bike:Our experienced volunteers will check your bike and make sure it’s safe to ride. It’s not a service but it will get you riding again.
Exploding inner tube races:Pump until they go bang! Whoever goes bang first wins!
Track stand competition:How long can you go without putting your foot down?
Inner tube repair master class: Learn how to repair an inner tube

There will also be lots of stalls and info on cycling, mental health and learning disabilities. Come along and have a chat to staff and volunteers, have a go on the activities and find out more about what they and can do for you

WHERE:
AtThe Old Post Office, find more information here about the venue. The Old Post Office is a Victorian building on the roundabout at the junction of Eden Street, Ashdown Road and Brook Street. The entrance is a set of double doors on Ashdown Road.

WHY:
Kingston Eco-op is a mental health and learning disability service in Kingston upon Thames run by the charity Kingston Voluntary Action. They run a project providing supported training to increase confidence, build self-esteem and reduce isolation and create opportunities for volunteering. 
One of the activities they do is the refurbishment of donated bicycles for second hand sale and so they decided that a festival of bicycles would be a great way to promote our services, what we do and who we are!

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
