Norwich Bicycle Repair Co-operative (NBRC) is an ethical business formed in 2013 by Joanna Chitty & Mark Smith.
We are a fully mutual workers’ co-operative, with clear social and environmental aims. As a not-for-profit business all surplus from our work is channelled back into community benefits, like getting more old bicycles and parts back into reuse, educating about and promoting cycling and keeping our services as affordable as possible.
First and foremost we are about quality bicycle repairs. We offer a comprehensive workshop repair service from our well equipped workshop. But we want to do more than just mend your bike, we’re committed to clear communication and not up-selling.
We only recommend repairs if they are necessary and will always endeavour to explain your repair to you. We aim for a friendly, accessible and jargon-free service. We also offer loads of advice on how to maintain your bike and keep cycling costs down.
We’re also about promoting cycling as a accessible, sustainable, practical and healthy form of transport
Norwich Bicycle Repair Co-operative Ltd aims to be open and accountable, so as far as possible we put information about our company in the public domain. You can find downloads for our consitution and other information about our business here.
