Fed up of feeling a bit overwhelmed when you set foot in your local bike shop? Well help is at hand on International Women's Day (March 8th) as we are teaming up with Bradford-based Cycle-re-Cycle for one of our women's basic bike maintenance workshop sessions.
The 2 hour introductory session is delivered by a female mechanic and is aimed at female cyclists with little or no bike maintenance know-how. It's suitable for riders of road, hybrid and mountain bikes.
Bring your bike along to the workshop and we'll show you around the bits of your bike and give you some top tips on how to clean and maintain it. We'll also show you how to diagnose basic common problems, discuss what basic tools you'll need to carry for roadside emergencies, and how to fix those dreaded rear-wheel punctures!
As well as a bike MOT you'll also get a mini-guide to take away with you so you won't forget the new skills you've learned.
The session will cost £10 (£8 NUS / unwaged) and will run from 7pm to 9pm on the 8th of March. It's being held at Cycle-re-Cycle's newly-opened bike workshop and shop in Garden Mills on Westholme Street, just off Thornton Road, close to Bradford town centre (see map). Places on the session are limited to 12 so booking is essential.
