“Ask not what your Infoshop can do for you, but what you can do for your infoshop… “
The Bike Room at the 56a Infoshop, London needs volunteers to come and hang out, drink tea, share their bike skillz and learn some new ones.
The 56a Bike Room is a collective of bike geeks trying to provide a real alternative to bike shops by helping people to fix their own bikes instead of charging them money to do it, and by recycling and scavenging old bicycles and bike parts. They also stock a small amount of essential bits and bobs like cables and inner tubes that they sell at cost price.
“The more people there are to help out, the easier it is for everyone who comes here, the more people we can get cycling and the more fun we all have.
If you think you can commit to doing a couple of hours each week then pop down to say hi to one of the volunteers. We’re open 3-7 Weds, 2-8 Thurs, 3-7 Fri and 2-6 Sat and we’re at 56a Crampton Street, SE17 3AE. Come along and we’ll show you around and let you get on with pimping out people’s bikes!”
56a is an Anarchist social centre with book, zine and record distros as well as squat info and bike workshop.
