Cycletastic is a project managed and supported by local volunteers to provide access to cycling. The project has been running for six years since being founded by Josie Warshaw and originally operating from a site behind the Kilburn State.
The project has grown over the years from providing simple bike maintenence sessions, that focused on educating the clients how to maintain their own bikes, to the fully kitted out bike shed that we have had installed this year just off Willesden Lane. Our activities are particularly based on providing a service to young people, unemployed, disadvantaged and persons on low income.
We are now able to accept donated cycles which we repair and recondition and then offer to local residents at a reduced rate. In many cases we will try to encourage the residents to become involved in the preparation of their own cycle.
