Youth Week: Bike Maintenance Workshop

April 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free
Learn how to keep your bike running smoothly at this free hands-on bike maintenance workshop for youth.

For Youth Week, we’re encouraging young people in the Inner West to jump on their bikes and feel more confident cycling in the local area.

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 free 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/discussion of further sources of credible maintenance information.

Who: This workshop is provided free for youth (13 to 24 years of age) who can confidently ride a bike and who are residents of the Inner West local government area.

When: Thursday 22 April, 5.00pm-7.30pm
