This is a shout out to anyone who has ever come down to bike club wanting to know more about fixing bikes, or has wanted to help out but been unsure if they have the skills to do so.
Some of the keen volunteers at bike club in conjunction with UNSW and Sydney Bike club have decided to put on a two day skillshare on bike mechanics, repairs and maintenance skills. On Saturday and Sunday the 12th-13th September in a range of sessions with different facilitators, we will be working through the different parts of the bike in a hands on fashion. Tea, Food and Tools will be provided.
WHY? Bike Club is a space that encourages people to develop their skills in working with bikes and with other people, to encourage the development and sharing of skills within community spaces. But breaking down the knowledge hierarchies takes work, work that we are keen to start.
