Cykelköket is an open workshop, located in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is as place where we all learn how to fix bikes!
Cykelköket (“The Bike kitchen”) is a open Do-It-Yourself workshop for everyone who needs to fix or service their bike. Our ambition is to raise the status of the bicycle and biking in general, as well as providing a social meeting place for bike interested people of all ages. Our workshop is open on a regular basis and also offer courses and workshops on bike mechanics. We are located in Linné, but we have pedalpowered capacities to come to e.g. festivals, companies or environmental exhibitions.
Public education and communal learning is a crucial part of our activities. Anyone, regardless of their level of knowledge, is welcome to participate and to get involved. Cykelköket even operates as a recycling center for discarded and abandoned bicycles and bicycle parts. We work together with e.g. landlords in order to collect bikes in need of fixing, that can then be offered to those in need of a bike.
Our work is conducted in cooperation with Studiefrämjandet Göteborg.
You can find our bylaws here. They can only be found in swedish unfortunately.
