About Common Wheel
We are currently based at three locations in Glasgow - bicycles at Maryhill and Bridgeton, and music at Gartnavel Royal Hospital.
The Common Wheel bicycle project was officially opened in July 2000 and gained charitable status a year later. Our clients learn how to build and maintain bicycles, and in the process gain self-confidence and self-esteem. The bicycle workshops are run by skilled mechanics who ensure that all work done is of excellent quality. As an integral part of the project, we sell reconditioned bicycles to the public, and carry out servicing and repairs. The revenue from bicycle sales and maintenance helps to keep the project afloat, but we need donations and grants as well.
The music project was started in 2004. There is a strong emphasis on client participation. The main strands involve work with elderly patients in residential care, and sessions with adults in the community.
The 2013 Sponsored Improvisation was staged on Saturday 2 February 2013. The music was amazing. Please support our intrepid musicians at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/sponsoredmusic2013/92299
