My way to the Brixton Cycles wall

Every visit to London has to include a fast ride to Brixton Cycles. They relocated last year and now I get to have coffee with their affiliation to Look Mum No Hands. I finally saw the supporters wall and had to search for my name. I was one of the supporters when they were obliged to relocate last year. Part of the incentive was having your name printed on their wall.

My name is there. They do not post it in alphabetical order, so you have to do a wider run-through to find your name. Mine is top left quadrant. But it is there. Very content.

Brixton Cycles is one of the best social cooperative bike shops and has managed to survive the ebbs and flows of business that have forced them to relocate a couple of times. Access too free tools for people who want to do their own repairs, and a social engagement atrtitudfe that keeps a loyal base.
