Bike Project

The Bike Project 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.

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.

Excellent service. Adam is a very good and thorough mechanic with good updates whilst your bike is being serviced.Very good value for money and a better option than other more expensive bike shops.Lastly funds go to a very good homeless project.
