The Bike Area is downstairs, it contains tools for fixing and hacking bikes. It also the place to temporally store your bike while at the space. It is accessed by going through the CNC Corridor past the Blue Room and dance school entrance, then on to the end of the Main Corridor. It is possible to exit (only) via the dance school entrance.

Tools and equipment

question An assortment of bike mechanic's tools available in this area. Additional tools were added in August 2021.

The bike area is currently cluttered with large items awaiting disposal, however the area is currently accessible.

Bike storage

In respect of our bike racks:

You are welcome to use the racks in the Bike Area to store your bike in the space if:

  • You are hacking in the space and using the space.
  • You want a safe place to leave your bike if you want to walk into town to shop/go to the cinema etc for a short period of time (ie, a morning or an afternoon).

You should not be using the bike racks:

  • For storing a bike for more than a day.
  • As storage for a project you’re working on.
  • Whilst you go to work every day (Nottingham City Council operate Citycard Cycle Hubs for this purpose).
