Week-by-week Jean will teach you how to identify the function, potential problems, and basic maintenance needed for each system of your bicycle. Workshops will each include an introduction to the topic, a short demonstration, and opportunity for hands on learning.
Workshops will be held in our workshop at 293 George Street on Thursday’s from 5:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Example parts will be drawn from our collection of bikes and parts, workshop participants are invited to bring their own bicycles for reference and practice but will not be opportunity for all repairs on all participant bikes.
