Join Stop Climate Chaos Scotland to share knowledge and plan action on the Climate Change Bill in a free workshop from 2pm to 430pm on Saturday 16 June at Renfield St Stephen’s, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JP.

We need to ensure the Government commits to a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, and a roadmap to reach that. So it’s time to start campaigning!

This is a big year for tackling climate change in Scotland as the Scottish Government prepares to introduce a new Climate Bill. In 2017, over 19,000 members of the public supported calls for an ambitious Bill with the policies for Scotland to do its share in limiting climate change.

This interactive workshop, hosted by Oxfam, will give you more information on Scotland’s new Climate Change Act and how you can get involved in the campaign for climate justice.

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are encouraging people from all across Scotland who care about climate change to come along to one of our workshops to meet other activists passionate about climate change, engage with the new climate Bill and to get involved.

You can take action now by emailing your local MSP to call for a stronger Climate Change Bill

Attend film screening after the workshop !!

20161112_workshopmakeoverThis summer was the busiest yet for the De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop. We sold the most bikes, accepted the most donations, undertook the most repairs and services and we also had our busiest summer in terms of events and activities out in the community since we re-opened three and a half years ago.

As a result the workshop has been working very hard and was looking a bit worse for wear and in need of some TLC. We also took some time to speak to our volunteers to see what other things could be improved in the workshop.

So a couple of weeks ago we spent most of the week having a big clear out, a deep clean, some running repairs as well as some painting and decorating! One of the things we wanted to do was try and make the workshop a brighter place to be. We have had great feedback from the volunteers and customers and we celebrated with some tea and cake!

Many thanks to the staff and all the volunteers for their efforts over the past week and also over the whole of the summer. Onwards and upwards!

20160601_DoW-signage-side01We recently had new permanent external signage installed at the De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop. The signage was installed at the side and front of the workshop and displays our opening hours, some key messages and our contact information – so if you pop by when the workshop is open you can clearly see where we are! And if you happen to pop by when we are closed you will be able to see when we are open and how to get in touch!

Many thanks to the Revolve Reuse programme which funded the signage and to Glasgow Housing Association who installed the signage for us and for their ongoing support.

Our Kestrel Workstands, the ones our fantastic sponsors paid for in return for 24 hours of our pain and suffering on the West Highland Way, have finally arrived!  Well, all except one part which has got lost in the snow somewhere.

So we now have a full complement of amazing stands.  They are so much better than the old ones, it’s a pleasure working on them, and these things will LAST.

So, a massive thank you to everyone who sponsored or helped.  We’re already planning the next fundraising event.  It will be in January and it’s going to be good!  We’ll be fundraising for another charity this time – keep your peepers peeled, all will be revealed very soon.

Our lovely tool board Woop! Lots of images here The workshop is officially open – Mon Tue 5-8pm, Wed Thu 1-6pm. We had a busy day up there today, there’s now 14 candidates applied for our build-a-bike courses, and today we had two people in fixing their bikes with Sandy’s help. Martin sorted out some niggly gears, brakes and headset issues, while Jim came in for an hour or so and cleaned and oiled his chain and freewheel, which were starting to seize up (despite liberal applications of cheap margerine to his chain – we think this could be a new market: “I can’t believe it’s not chain lube”) . Jim told us he rides around a lot and it helps keep him in good health, but lately he’s not been out on his bike at all because it wasn’t working and he’d been told it’d cost £70 to fix. All it needed was the right tools and a few drops of oil – Jim’s well pleased and he’s coming back next week to learn more about bike maintenance.


The workshop is officially open!

We’ve been working hard to get the workshop back up to scratch an our bicycle recycling project is ready for re-launch. We need bikes and we need volunteers, so get down to 40 Kingsway Court and help us out. The workshop looks fantastic – photos will follow, and we’ll fill you in about exactly what will go on there in a post to follow.

But in general, it’s all about encouraging cycling. We want local kids and adults to learn to build and maintain bicycles and use them every day.
