Earlier this year Lambeth Cyclists sought feedback from members about the possibility of bike maintenance classes being run in Lambeth, with a fair bit of interest expressed.
Thanks to Lambeth Council, we have now been awarded a grant to fund bike maintenance classes at the Oasis Adventure Playground (in Stockwell) from September.
The classes are run by Mel Allwood, formerly of Brixton Cycles, and will consist of a series of five 2-hour classes on Tuesday evenings, covering tyres, brakes, wheels, gears and a general fix it session.
The cost is £25 for the series, payable up front. People on income-based benefits will have the fee waived, and preference will be given to LCC members.
If the demand is there, some of the series will be women only (the Cycling for Women project found that some women prefer women-only classes).
The first session started on 13th September, the next on November 1st and the last on the 3rd or 10th of January.
(NB: LCC has produced a free downloadable advice booklet on bike maintenance - available by following the link on the right.)
Update: New classes have been arranged! Follow the link below to find out more.
