Cykelköket (Bike Kitchen Gävle)
An Open DIY bike workshopBrynäs, Gävle
Cykelköket Gävle (“The Bike kitchen Gävle”) is an open Do-It-Yourself workshop for everyone who needs to fix or service their bike. Their 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.
Public education and communal learning is a crucial part of their 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. They 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.
