Edventure 15 Start Up students launch ding
UpdatesLeave a comment

We are ding, a mobile community bike workshop for Frome set up by a team of students on Edventure’s 15th Start-Up Course. 

We are passionate about creating a confident cycling community and bringing hands-on bike repair workshops to Frome. One of ding’s goals is to make cycling more accessible, by empowering people through learning basic repairs for their bikes with the help and expertise from professionals around Frome. 

We have just received funding from the Postcode Lottery to run monthly pop-up bike repair days, starting Saturday 12th December from 9:00 – 15:00 in 3 locations: The Welsh Mill Hub, the bandstand at Victoria Park and the community hub at the Mount. If you have a bike that’s in need of some TLC, email us on [email protected] to book a 30-minute slot for mini bike servicing and repairs on Saturday 12th December to book a free space. Donations will be asked for, but there is no formal charge.

Maria, Head of Business planning and strategy at ding says “we are thrilled to be able to offer regular monthly pop up bike repair services in Frome. There’s been a surge in interest in cycling throughout the Covid pandemic and we want to play a part in getting people back on their bikes”.

We’re planning to launch ding digitally through our Instagram and Facebook with a big thunderclap moment and would love your help. 

Jake, Project Manager at ding says planning the launch event has been challenging, but I am excited that we have come up with the thunderclap event where we are going to create an online storm! I’m forming part of the transition team, where I will help set us up as a CIC (community interest company). It is also great that we have received £2,000 from the Postcode Lottery”. 

We’re making a short video which we will be posting on Friday the 13th of November. We would love to invite you to share it widely and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
