Introductory Mechanics Workshop
 

Whether you want to do your own repairs or just understand what your mechanic is telling you, it’s always helpful to know a bit about bikes! This workshop will get you started with an easy introduction to bike mechanics. You’ll learn about the different parts of the bicycle, how to assess a bicycle for needed repairs, and will get to practice fixing a flat tire – the most common problem we have with our bikes!

When: Wednesday, October 11 6:30-8:00
Where: Bikechain, 563 Spadina Crescent (entrance on Bancroft)
Cost: PWYC, suggested donation $5-15
