The Black Bridge Cycle Project, in its original form, has been temporarily suspended due to renovation work on the bike shed, which was deemed unsafe. Although the renovation work is now complete, there is still a number of technical and legal obstacles remaining before we can reinstate the bike project. We hope to have these resolved as soon as possible. Meanwhile, the renovated bike shed has already been put to good use as a local community venue for local arts and youth related activities. Arts in Merkinch continue to run the annual gallery exhibition during July, and will have a number of arts related workshops for young people during the autumn. Marc Delaye, a local artist, has conducted a number of workshops, and helped direct a mural project on one of the interior walls. The shed also hosts training evenings for local youth workers. If you are interested in hosting an event or activity in the community, please come and discuss your ideas with us.
