Southwark Cyclists and Lettsom Tenants & Residents Association (henceforth TRA) are holding free bike maintenance sessions with tuition and hands on assistance. You can bring your bike in for a free check-up; come and learn the basics of bike maintenance, or just drop in for a chat about anything bike-related. You can be as clueless as me -- all grades of cycling expertise tolerated and encouraged. You can be an expert, they like a challenge.
The whole operation is free ó you donít need to live on the Lettsom or even in Southwark. You will need a bike. It doesn't need to have all the bits though they can't be mended unless you acquire them. The man in charge is Bruno whom many people will have met on our summer Dr Bikes. You can bring that bike you found at the back of the shed. He's not afraid of spiders
The sessions start on December 4th 6.30-8.30pm and will be a mix (depending on need) of teaching (this is how you change brakes) and hands-on assistance. They will be held in the Lettsom TRA hall. The official address is 114 Vestry Road SE5 8PQ. But like all estates the numbering and street names can be quite a mystery. The only way found to describe it so far is that itís just up the hill from the parade of shops, and then down a passage
Go on be brave. Pic of hall to follow.
All welcome. Free to all. After the 4th they will be every 1st and third Tuesday except in January when they will be the 8th and 22nd. Queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
