Got the knowledge and skills to maintain your bike yourself but don’t have the tools and the parts to do so?
Our ‘Fix your Own Bike’ workshop is a space for do-it-yourself repairs and maintenance where you can rent a workstand, use our tools and have certified professional mechanics and volunteers help and advise you through the process while you do the work.

You are fixing your own bike, therefore an appropriate level of mechanical ability will be needed for these sessions. If you think you are not quite there then maybe sign up for one of our group or One-to-One Maintenance Classes.
There is a class for every ability and they are designed to enable a progression to each level.
Introductory classes are offered on a first-come-first-served basis and free of charge at Bike for Good Community Hub, you can also join their Facebook to receive relevant information on upcoming dates for classes.
