Maintenance and Repair Workshops
We are looking forward to hosting workshops for those who are interested in learning how to fix and maintain their bicycle. Each workshop will be lead by mechanics whose goal is to create an inclusive learning environment for a community of learners with varying skill levels. We are not only providing a technical service, we are also co-creating meaning so please let us know what your specific interests are when it comes to working on your bike so that we can create a personalized learning experience.
