We get heaps of requests for maintenance classes, and although these aren’t being run by us, these two courses from Sydney Community College look pretty good..
Conducted by a qualified bicycle mechanic, learn how to fix a puncture, remove a wheel and replace a tyre, maintain their brakes, adjust gears, check steering, pedal, axle and wheel hub bearings, check the general safety of bike and set up your bike with a correct and safe riding position.
Havent ridden in a while and feeling a bit rusty? Is your bike gathering dust in the garage? Get some confidence back by learning new skills and enjoy your bike again. Do some exercise and discover Sydneys new cycleways. Learn how to check the bike and even take the front wheel off to fit it in the car. Enjoy a cycleway ride with a group.
Also, Gear Up Girl is back on again. The workshop is on the 9th of Feb, with the Challenge ride on the 8th of March – International Women’s Day.
“Gear up Girl is about getting women of all ages and abilities on their bikes. This year we are excited to present two days of cycling fun: the Gear up Girl Workshop and the Gear up Girl Challenge.”
