An Mheitheal Rothar, Galway’s Community Bike Workshop: encouraging positive environmental choices and local cycling culture!

We aim to encourage and nurture a culture of cycling in Galway city, by establishing a practical, ethically motivated facility and social hub, which supports a strong community and promotes the health and environmental benefits of cycling.

Some of the many community events we run include open, public workshops for people to visit with their bicycles in need of repair. One of our volunteers will work with you to help fix your bicycle or just give it a tune up, whatever you like. Our volunteers do as little work as possible so that every person who visits learns as much about bicycle maintenance and repair as possible!

We are a non-profit voluntary organisation which thrives on the donations of those who visit.

Feel free to call in even just to visit the space, our public workshops are currently 6-9pm on Wednesdays and 12-3pm on Fridays. We have our volunteer coordinating meeting on Tuesdays from 6-7pm and this would be a great time to call in and meet everyone :-)
