About Bike Punks

Bike Punks started in 2015 as part of Tweeddale Youth Action’s Climate Challenge Funded project to raise awareness and encourage behaviour change in young people in Tweeddale.

Through Bike Punks we taught young people how to repair and maintain bicycles as well as fixing up donated bikes which we gave out to the community. 

As the project progressed, we gave some thought to the ever growing pile of redundant bike parts, and twisted frames that were beyond repair and with the addition of metal work tools and the know how of our Bike Punk lead, artist, sculptor and metal worker, Aegir Maciver, we started to produce toilet roll holders, trophies and small pieces of collectible art.
