Bike Repairs and Rentals in Moss Side, Manchester

The Bike Workshop is a small and welcoming bike repair and rental service catering for the Moss Side, Rusholme, Fallowfield, Hulme and Whalley Range communities in Manchester.

We offer traditional bike shop services, sell refurbished bikes, train bike mechanics, run bike maintenance workshops and provide bike rentals.

We can supply a wide range of parts for most bikes, often at prices much lower than high street bike shops. If you’re looking for parts for your bike, then come and talk to us.

Throughout the Spring and Summer months we visit offices and businesses in and around Manchester with our mobile workshop where we service bikes outside your workplace. Click HERE if you’d like to book your bike in for a service.

We are based at the Boiler House on Wilcock Street in Moss Side, which is just off Alexandra Road and about 3 minutes from Hulme High Street. We are close to Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and Manchester University (UoM)

We are a social enterprise supported by Manchester Cycling Academy, and much of our work is discounted to make it accessible to the local community. If you have an interest in bikes and have some spare time to help us each week we would love to hear from you.

*FREE FRIDAYS This is a programme funded by Cycling UK through the big bike revival programme. Your bike will be given a FREE Bronze Service worth £35 and you will be advised if any replacement parts are needed. To make sure we have time to service your bike, we strongly recommend that you book your bike in with us via our automated system. It is possible to ‘drop in’ but it is likely that you will have to wait until we can fit you in as we sometimes get very busy. As the website is automated, if the site displays a price, then we have used up our allocation of free services for that week.
