The Perth Bicycle Collective is ready to roll! Piotr Pawlowski and Peggy Land are co-leaders for the project which aims to encourage a cycling culture in Perth by offering monthly basic maintenance workshops to the public and to encourage safe cycling in collaboration with the OPP's Community Services Officer, David Bird.
Participants will be shown how to clean their chains, tighten their brakes, patch or replace a tube and true a wheel by themselves. They are encouraged to bring their own tools and parts if possible but some tools will be on hand.
The workshops are free and will be held on Saturday May 24 indoors at the Crystal Palace, 10-1pm during the Farmers Market when safety information will also be available.
Other dates are: Saturdays 2-5 pm behind The Table at 190 Gore Street, (Sundays same time if it rains on Saturday, but not if it is also raining that time on Sunday), on June 7, July 12, Aug. 9, and Sept. 13.
Bring your bikes and any tools, and be prepared to get to work!
