Norwich Bicycle Repair Co-operative Ltd

About us

Norwich Bicycle Repair Co-operative (NBRC) was 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.

Cycling and fixing bikes is our passion: we want to help as many people as possible to get back on the road and ride their bikes with confidence. This basic motivation informs everything we do, from our workshop repairs to the advice we give. We’re committed to clear communication and not up-selling. To this end we always endeavour to explain your repair without jargon and with a focus on what your needs are.

In addition we offer workshops and tuition, as well as plenty of tips and advice on how to run and maintain your bike on a budget.

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.
