free bike maintenance with hands-on tuition

February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
camberwell leisure centre, Artichoke Place SE5 8TS + Google Map

This is a drop-in not a course so what gets taught is pretty random. You bring the problems and the guys teach you how to fix them. This is the place to bring the bike covered in spiders which you found in your Mam’s shed. They also do less long term stuff like “How do I pump up these tyres?” (a question which puzzled me for a long time) and “Why does my chain keep coming off?” (it’s stretched and…

Just what it says really. We have a great mechanic at this Bring 'n Fix it session at the Walworth Living Room (see pic). Bring a bike (any condition) and they will help you get it into better shape. There are guys fixing lots of other things too so you can bring those along as well. Despite the attractive-looking playground in the pic, this session is highly likely to be indoors.

Our Dr Bikes are cancelled until further notice.

We have a professional mechanic that brings the tools and if there's anything we're not sure about, he can…

Our guys will be in the cheerful and friendly Camberwell Leisure Centre in wonderfully named Artichoke Place SE5 8TS. It’s a delightful building with cafe, good staff and, now, great bike fixing.

Dr Bike on Quietway 1 at the junction of Lynton Road and Dunton Road and across the road from Cafe Crol (see pic) to be exact.
