Bike Project

The Bike Project in Hemel Hempstead provides opportunities for DENS clients to learn bike maintenance skills and build their confidence in a supportive environment.

Under the supervision of our Bike Project manager, our clients learn to refurbish bikes that have been donated to us, which we then sell to help fund the project. Each participant gets to keep a bike they have worked on. The Bike Project also offers bike repairs and a wide range of bike servicing options.

Excellent professional bike service done exceptionally quickly and expertly. I had a gear service on a relatively new road bike with very jumpy gears and everything was done to correct all problems and the bike as returned to me with smooth gears. Thank you

I took my road bike in for a service and Adam was really good in helping me with all my bike queries. I am still relatively new to road biking so questions on everything from bike parts to bike clothing - Adam definitely has some expert info.He also sourced my replacement wheels cheaper than the market prIce I was seeing on Google!Definitely recommend for any getting started in cycling and money goes to a great cause!

I recently had the pleasure of getting my bike repaired at Den's Bike Repair, and I couldn't be more impressed with the service provided by Adam. From the moment I walked in, Adam was friendly, professional, and attentive to my needs.My bike had a few issues that needed fixing, and Adam not only identified them quickly but also explained the necessary repairs in a way that was easy to understand. The turnaround time was incredibly fast – I dropped off my bike in the morning and it was ready to go by the afternoon. The quality of the repair work was exceptional, and my bike now rides smoother than ever.Adam's expertise and prompt service truly set Den's Bike Repair apart from other shops. I highly recommend this place to anyone in need of bike maintenance or repair. Thanks, Adam, for your excellent work!

My bike enjoyed a thorough service I dropped and collected it the same day. Everything was tested, aligned and tweaked and a few bits replaced (I was offered quotes before choosing the options I wanted.) It was just like having a new bike afterwards. Delighted with speed and quality of the work.

Dens could not have been more helpful when I had a pretty odd request. Adam in particular was great help. Had my issue resolved in no time thanks to the very accommodating service. 5-stars without a doubt.

Excellent service, very knowledgeable and great communication.The level of service I experienced was way beyond my expectations of a charity bike shop. They took my part built bike and finished it to be a superb gravel bike.Adam is a first class mechanic and I have no hesitation in recommending him. It will now be my "go to" bike shop.
