I have strong reservations about ‘Bike Kitchen’ and ‘Bike Church’, which I would be willing to swallow if I didn’t get the impression that others also felt such objections.

My objections stem from the fact that we’re neither providing food, nor are we in (or associated with) a church or religious building, nor do I feel that our mission is especially to evangelise about cycling.


Bill and I had a discussion about this the other day, and although we didn’t settle on a single name we particularly liked, we feel that the best option would probably be:

a three-word name, with a suitably snappy acronym (ahem, initialism), of which two of the words are ‘leeds’ and ‘bike’.
- possibilities for the third word (in whatever arrangement) might be: project, thing, coop, collective, shed, space, place-where-you-learn-to-fix-things.
