messagefree bike maintenance workshop with hands-on tuition Tues Feb 5th
Posted by Sally Eva February 01, 08:35AM

This is a joint venture between Southwark Cyclists and the Lettsom Tenants and Residents Association (henceforth TRA). The TRA are providing the hall and we are providing the volunteers and the expertise. That is not meant to imply that the expertise and the voluntariness are separate. I can't attach pictures of the hall but they are on the website

The TRA hall is at 114 Vicarage Road Camberwell SE5 8PQ. It's run by Bruno who is a star of our summer-time Dr Bikes under Peckham Arch and outside Crol coffee shop on Quietway 1. The idea is to not just fix but empower smiling smileySo Bruno and friends will help you fix your bike and explain what you are doing and why. It's not a course. You bring the questions or the problems and they bring the helpfulness and knowledge.

They will be at the hall from 6.30-8.30pm on Tues Feb 5th which is a little later than the summer commuter Dr Bikes. Take up has been weather-dependent but keen. For more info PM me here or mail (that is the slower way). Our website and slightly more info is here: []

Southwark Cyclists is the borough branch of the London Cycling Campaign and campaigns for more, safer cycling in London. Everything we do is free and open to all. Bruno carries small parts but if you know your bike needs parts (like wheels) you will need to bring them with you.

Does anyone know if there are currently any bike maintenance courses available in Southwark? I realise what Sally Eva has posted about is not actually a course. However there don't seem to be any local courses scheduled by Cycle Confident who provided the excellent free cycle training sessions when I started cycling in London. I'd like to be able to competently repair a puncture and do other basic repairs before I set off to tour the globe (or even explore parts of SE England!)
