New free resource

Madegood - which is coincidentally based in the London Borough of Hackney, also known as bicycle paradise - has a new online bike repair manual.


It's free and growing, and useful for those times when the Fawcett Bike Club isn't open...

Fawcett fuelled by a couple of bikes


Two *le-git bikes destined for the Fawcett Bike club stand locked up outside my door awaiting transport to Upper Clapton Road. The Saracen was donated by a colleague of mine from 'Young Hackney' and the Giant was passed onto me by my neighbour on the ground floor. These gifts (that will keep on giving) are much appreciated and will arrive in the right young hands of proven worth and suitability - as deemed by our team at the centre.
These days we struggle to locate second hand bikes to fuel our project, this is mainly due to Hackney Police maintaining their current policy of exporting accumulated bikes out of the borough and not towards our project occasionally as used to be the case. This is reportedly to avoid the possibility of conflict and problems resulting in unclaimed bikes being released back into the same community that they came from.
So appealing to anyone out there with a legitimate cycle to donate for the cause please get in touch or go direct to the centre at Fawcett Estate Garage 8 on a Thursday evening between 6 & 8pm.
