The Team
Our goals
Mobilisation

With your own bike you can get quickly and independently through the city without paying money for train tickets. What we also find very important is that you get a good overview of a city and consequently get acquainted with it when riding your bike.

Provide integration

Because of our workshop as a place for team work and communication we want to support the integration of refugees and create a community with different projects which are connected to bicycles. With our training program we offer the possibility to take on responsibility for a certain task aiming to empower the trainees to lead an opening time on their own where people from Berlin can come to get their bikes repaired by refugees.

Environmental friendlieness

Our bikes are recycled because we take used parts from our stock to fix them. Additionally we create sustainable mobilisation by sensitizing many people for the most environmentally friendly vehicle.
