Join us for a six-week workshop series that will deepen your knowledge and understanding of bicycle mechanics. 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 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 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 with so much to cover in just two hours there will not be opportunity for all repairs on all participant bikes.
Registration is required. Registration is limited to 8 participants. Fee for the series is $90 inclusive of HST. If cost is a barrier to your participation, please let us know. Register by emailing Tegan at Tegan@communitybikeshop.org
