Wheels of Fleet is currently advertising two part-time posts working with the project.
The Wheels of Fleet is a bicycle project based in Gatehouse of Fleet, which aims to increase bicycle use locally. We offer the training and maintenance of bicycles, a local repair service, affordable prices of bikes and courses, local maps of bike rides and other support to local people to get on their bikes. By adopting the permaculture ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share, we provide sustainable solutions to increase awareness and improve personal, physical and mental health whilst having a positive impact on the environment. It is a project of the Gatehouse Development Initiative (GDI). WoF takes in old bikes and where possible uses existing parts to reuse and recycle, creating workable bikes made accessible to all. WoF supports more day to day journeys on foot or by bike. We have received funding from the Paths for All Smarter Choices, Smarter Places fund and the Dumfries & Galloway Council's Participatory Budgeting Tackling Poverty Fund.
