A big part of what we do is getting good fun exercise on our own bikes.
Our collection volunteers own their own bikes; they borrow and look after the bike trailers owned by the Collective, and can use them for personal purposes. Alternatively, our volunteers can make use of their personal trailers, or if really keen, rent one out from www.cycle.land. We try as much as possible to purchase reused trailers, from either online sources such as Gumtree, ebay, or if we’re lucky, from local online item sharing groups.
For bike maintenance, we endeavour to work with Oxford’s Broken Spoke co-op.
