Union Cycle Works Party at the Deptford Project

A bespoke bike by UCW

I have been hearing a lot about the Deptford Project from my cooler, southerner friends. It is high on my list of places to explore in the near future, and has just been bumped higher by the opening of  Union Cycle Works. It's a  new  workshop which partners with people from disadvantaged backgrounds to build bespoke bikes with a story. I want one (sorry Trusty). They're a not-for-profit co-operative aiming to create a community cycling hub, and all round brilliant.

On top of this good news, they are having a launch party. Apparenty, we are all cordially invited to join them this Friday (8th of October) from 7.30pm onwards at the Union Cycle Works HQ. You'll get a chance to peruse their beautiful range of renovated frames and bikes, take advantage a free Brooks Saddle personalised stamping service (bring your own), and lots of locally sourced beverages. Bikes and beer? Yes please.


  1. Do you have their address? I couldn't see it anywhere on the website.

  2. Ah yes- well The Deptford Project is 121-123 Deptford High Street, SE8 4NS. It's in a railway arch so you should be able to find it....
