Nigel King – VT Bikes Manager

Nigel provides a buzzing hub for cycling, with over 35 bikes for all age ranges, bike repairs and a spot for training with cycling organisations like Cycle Confident, Tower Hamlets Cycling and Newham Cyclists. Up to ten instructors have been helping people learn to cycle, with Nigel’s bikes proving to be a great resource for the local community and visitors alike who want to enjoy cycling. Group sessions run every Saturday from 10-2pm and one-to-one sessions take place on weekends, whilst various groups and individuals frequent the container during the week.

Underpinning his work at VT bikes is Nigel’s interest in the community and ethos of offering a helping hand. Using the bikes is low cost and free to those who are training- giving people the opportunity to gain a new or forgotten skill is what makes a difference to him and the people using his bikes. Aside from visitors from around the world, local people looking for a fun hobby or family activity are welcomed. The bikes also serve as an aid to health and wellbeing- many who come to use the bikes have been advised by GP’s to increase their activity to improve their physical or mental health. Whilst cycling might be intimidating at first, having an affordable and welcoming option is what we and Nigel believe will make a difference in our local community and get more people enjoying the benefits of cycling.
