Common Wheel supports people with mental illness by providing meaningful activities. We have two projects. Our bike project supports people in repairing and recycling old bikes into 'good as new' bikes for our clients to ride away and keep. Our music project supports people in singing, playing and composing music. Our projects aim to improve mental wellbeing, and support people in learning new skills.
What we do
Our vision is that people with mental illness in Glasgow are able to live a meaningful and satisfying life and contribute to society.
Our mission is to improve mental wellbeing, increase skills and reduce isolation through the provision of supported, meaningful activities for people with mental illness and dementia.
Our bike shop
Common Wheel has been providing an exceptional quality in bicycle repairs and reconditioning for about 14 years. Our engineers have uncompromising standards for safety and quality control, and our work is guaranteed. If you are interested in buying a reconditioned bike, would like to have your bike serviced, or would like Common Wheel to build a bike to your specification, please get in touch or take a look at our online showroom to see what we have in stock.
Build Your Own Bike
Ever fancied building your own bike? Or are you looking for the perfect Xmas gift? Common Wheel will be running a ‘Build Your Own Bike’ course starting on 28 January 2016. You will be able to select a bike or frame from our extensive pre-loved stock, or you may already have a bike that you would like to rebuild. Find out more here.
Pick up a bargain at our Maryhill workshop on Saturday 12 December from 10am to 2pm.
