Banking on Biking

Each workshop is being run through a local time bank - check the table below for your nearest location and contact the time broker to book your place. There are 20 places available at each workshop so please contact the time broker to put your name down.

If you are not a time bank member you can sign up on the day, so contact your timebroker to find out more.

Time banks are a great way to link people locally to share their time and skills. Everybody's time is equal: one hour of your time earns you one time credit to 'spend' when you need a helping hand.

Workshops will be 3 hours and 'cost' 3 time credits. if you don't have any time credits already, you can always earn them later when you do things for the time bank and your community.

The workshops will cover how to change a tyre & mend a puncture, cleaning & maintaining your bike, checking brakes and oiling chains and gears. There will be bike goodies from London Cycling Campaign & Transport for London and everyone coming along will be entered into a prize draw to win a new bike, helmet and bike lock donated by Halfords Enfield.

Remember to bring your bike along! If you don't have a bike contact the time broker and let them know - they will try to have some spares for you to use.

Lucy Davis, London Cycling Campaign's Community Cycling Officer, says:"This is a great opportunity for existing and new Time Bank members to think about how cycling can be a part of their daily lives, learn how to look after a bike, learn new skills, whilst having fun and meeting different members of their local community..."

Kika Williamson from Time Bank UK says "These workshops are a fun way to encourage more people to get on their bike and feeling confident out and about in their community. Time banks link people together to share skills in their area - come and learn some useful bike skills and join up to your local time bank".
