Free bike maintenance with added advice. Our mechanics will tighten your brakes, check and inflate your tyres and index your gears (this means stop them making that clicking noise) They will also give chain advice (when it keeps falling off you need a new one, clean it more often and it will last longer). This wonderful service is free and open to all. The guys in the picture with the banner are: Charlie on the left (our top mechanic), and…

free bike maintenance with hands-on tuition

November 5, 2019 @ 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…

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. The guys like a challenge. They also do less intellectually heavyweight stuff like “How do I pump up these tyres?” (a question which puzzled me for a long time) and “Why does my chain keep…

monthly meeting

January 8, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

At our not-so-new venue at 41 Grosvenor Park SE5 0NH (see picture above). It’s much more respectable than it looks. Coming from Burgess Park, cross Camberwell New Road and proceed in an westerly direction along Urlwin Street, under the railway bridges, left at the end and straight on into the cul-de-sac in front of you. Very respectable. Look carefully, no 41 is slightly less respectable and belongs to the tenants association. That’s the place. No bike parking. Try the railings. The…

Walworth Living Room, Surrey Square

Reduce, re-use, re-cycle. How about Repair? This is a skill-sharing event and we will be sending our pro-mechanic to share his skills and teach other people to fettle their bikes. This is a community event to draw on skills in the community to mend stuff and get stuff mended. My grandad used to mend his family's shoes and clocks. My aunt made clothes for four children. Fixing broken things is very satisfying. The idea is to value some of those…
