Workshop Stories: London Bike Kitchen
The London Bike Kitchen is based on an American concept that teaches it’s customers to fix their own bikes. Jenni Gwiazdowski is a Californian cycle-entrepreneur who moved to London during a pivotal time in Hackney’s most recent cycling revolution, and immediately spotted an opportunity to provide a valuable resource for the community. More than just another bike shop, the London Bike Kitchen is a school for every cyclist.
Warm, inspirational and overflowing with self motivation, Jenni set up the London Bike Kitchen out of a need to learn cycle maintenance that matched her desire to teach it. Providing the technical expertise is equally eccentric Pete, an accomplish frame designer that prefers to build frames that more resemble works of art than practical modes of transport.
