02 Aug Gears for Queers: ABC’s of Bike Maintenance
August 16, 2018 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
B!KE: The Peterborough Community Cycling Hub
293 George Street
Gears for Queers is a B!KE pilot project. Gears for Queers is dedicated to creating a learning space for queer and trans people that is facilitated entirely by queer and trans people.
Each week will include a focus that is discussed throughout the evening. The focus is meant to be a topic of discussion but projects and repairs will not be limited to it in any way.
Focuses for each week are:
August 16th ~ The ABC’s of Bike Maintenance
August 30th ~ All About Brakes
September 13th ~ Shifters and Derailleurs
September 27th ~ Grease, Bearings, and Beyond
Like Open Shop, during Gears for Queers community members will be invited to work on their own bikes, participate in Earn-A-Bike, or work on volunteer project bikes. Gears for Queers is a drop-in program and participation is not required or limited to a particular time or day. During Gears for Queers stands will be filled on a first-come, first served basis.
