International Women’s Day Bike Maintenance Workshop

March 30, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

To celebrate International Women’s Day (8 March) we’re offering a free bike maintenance workshop for people who identify as women.

Please note: we have changed the date from Wednesday 9 March to Wednesday 30 March due to the wet weather conditions.

Would you like to know how to fix a puncture and keep your bike in good working order, so you know it’s always ready to roll? Join our hands-on bike maintenance workshop to learn how to keep your bike running smoothly with just a few basic tools and some practical know-how.

Led by Pedal Set Go, bike education experts, this workshop will cover the following: how to check your bike is safe to ride, what tools you need, how to keep things clean and lubed, how to get the wheels on and off, how to fix a flat and how to know when parts need replacing. There’ll be time for questions and discussion of further sources of credible maintenance information.

Accessibility: If you have any access or support requirements in order to participate fully please let us know.

Please bring:

  • One bike maximum per person, although you could share one bike between two people
  • Any tools you may already have
  • A rag for cleaning
  • Clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty
  • Enclosed shoes
  • A notepad and pen if you want to take notes
  • Water bottle and snacks
