Umeås cykeljunta (in short: Cykeljuntan, i.e. The Bike Bee) is a non-profit organization, established in 2016 in Umeå, Northern Sweden. We want to help people learn to take care of their own bicycles by coming together, sharing knowledge and skills. Taking inspiration from the traditional syjunta (sewing bee), we see bike mending as a social event. We believe that each and everyone is capable of taking matters into their own hands, finding understanding and empowerment together within a supporting community.
You can find our workshop at Klintvägen 43, close to the hospital. The regular opening hours are Thursdays at 18.00–20.00 for our members. No prior knowledge is required to participate. Just bring your bike, a good mood, and join the other participants. We help each other out and learn and teach at the same time. Tools and grease are of course available without charge. We have some spare parts on sale for cheap prices.
Cykeljuntan is run by its members and depends on the engagement we channel into it. Each year we elect a board among ourselves to manage the administration, economy and development.
You can become a member to support us and gain access to our workshop every Thursday. You can also take part in planning and arranging activities. The membership fee is 200 SEK a year.
