Boneshacker Magazine

Reading through issue #1 of the Bristol based Boneshacker Magazine. It’s fantastic! Conceived by James Lucas who started a community bicycle workshop more or less like ours down in Bristol, ‘Boneshacker is a collection of articles, stories and anecdotes about people and projects doing great things with bicycles.’

Full to the brim with photography and illustration, we hope that it will both inspire and entertain, raise awareness and bring a smile to your face…and appeal to both bike-heads and to those who may not yet even have experienced the true joy and freedom that can be found from our two-wheeled friends.

Issue #2 is in print and the magazine will be published quarterly, printed on recycled paper etc. It’s a pleasure to read. Order your copy for £5 here:

Glasgow Bike Shed

Yo! Check out the new Glasgow Bicycle Community Project that opened on the 10th of July 2010. Give them a shout and a good luck! So nice to see there are more of us now!

We are a Glasgow based Community Social Enterprise run by volunteers that recycles bicycles from a variety of local sources and promotes safe cycling in town.

Refurbished donated bikes and re-usable parts will be reconditioned and sold in the shop. All other parts such as steel, aluminum, alloys, rubber etc will be dismantled for scrap. It also offers bicycle related training and advice to local communities such as puncture repair, bike maintenance and cycle training. A part of the workshop space will be available to customers two days a week to visit and to use the tools to repair their own bikes under the supervision of our mechanics.

The project is committed to promote cycling and re-cycling in Glasgow.
