Free drop-in bike maintenance workshops for women

Sundays 14th May - 4th June

Are you a cyclist and want to improve your bike knowledge? And while you're at it do you want to meet other like minded women* cyclists? Great! We have just the thing for you!

Join Sylwia at KPC Social Sundays to learn some useful stuff about bikes in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere!

Over the four week programme we will cover the basics of bicycle bike maintenance and more, so have a look at our schedule below and come to all four sessions or pick the ones that interest you the most!

We haven't covered something you're confused about? There's question time after each session so you can ask our female bike mechanic any technical questions you may have!

And if that's not enough we are doing some bike games and activities after each workshop to help you improve your bike handling skills in a fun way!

Tell your friends and we hope you can make it!
