Volunteer With Us

Volunteer mechanics are the lifeblood of our recycling enterprise and an integral part of the Cardiff Cycle Workshop community.

Donating your time and energy can be a rewarding experience and we are always happy to hear from potential volunteers. Candidates will ideally have some bike repair experience or transferable maintenance skills. As a volunteer, you would be helping to repair the donated bikes in our dedicated recycling workshop. Our experienced staff are always on hand to guide you through any tasks that you are unfamiliar with, in a relaxed and positive manner. The kettle is always on!

Shifts are available  Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm, with volunteers generally committing to at least 3 hours per week. If you have some spare time and would like to get involved please get in touch via the form below.

“Came away a lot more confident with attempting to build a wheel. The course was run in a relaxed manner and no question was too much for Jon to answer. Look forward to my next course.”

“Sustainability has worked with CTW successfully for a number of years, with sessions every month on Campus. They provide bike servicing for staff, students and the local community as part of our free Repair Café events. It’s a service to all to promote sustainable cycle travelling to Campus and the benefits of repair. They are so knowledgeable and as well as fixing on site they provide great friendly honest advice.”

“We visited today and picked a bike for my 6 year-old. He got to try it out and you fixed the brakes as they were a bit squeaky! Very covid safe! Excellent bike and my boy loves it. Great it has a 3-month warranty too!”

I’d just like to say a massive ‘Thank You’ to the boys and girls at Cardiff Cycle workshop. They’ve done absolute wonders for my bike over the years! It’s was an old heavy Peugeot which I bought from new in about 1990. Although I used it regularly, it was getting too heavy for me, so the team changed the wheels for ones that were much lighter; put some super duper tyres on them, and on top of that, replaced the old hard saddle for a brand new very comfortable one. I make sure that I get my bike serviced regularly with them too. Such a friendly bunch too-always time for a chat. There is nothing they don’t know about bikes. Highly recommended!
