Broken Spoke is a bicycle mechanics cooperative based in Oxford. Their work supports women, trans, and
nonbinary mechanics, and others who are underrepresented in the industry. In 2022, Broken Spoke
contributed to Next Gen Riders, a Bikeability Trust funded project. Next Gen Riders brought together partners
across Oxford to deliver innovative support for communities that are under-represented in cycling, with a
particular focus on young people and those in their households.
OFS trained Broken Spoke staff in story collecting and supported an evaluation of this work. They collected six stories from a wide range of participants.
