Women Fix It Free Classes

Workshops coming up in Camberwell for women only

Hello All who have shown an interest in Women Fix It,

We are really happy to let you all know we have a whole bunch of sessions coming up at Camberwell. Thanks to BeeUrban and Camberwell Subterriania.

We have changed how we will roll out these classes and have had to add a charge of £20 per class for last 6 classes in the spring as we have no funding for these.

So get on the free list If you can!

We have three classes to teach and its up to you which sessions you can attended and when.
The dates are:

28/01/2017-M Check
11/02/2017-Puncture Repair

18/02/2017-M Check
04/03/2017-Puncture Repair

18/03/2017-M Check
01/04/2017-Puncture Repair

22/04/2017-M Check
06 /05/2017-Puncture Repair

M Check– getting to know all the part names of your bike how it works and how to clean and lubricate correctly. A chance to take things apart and put them back together. Looking at the Ball bearing parts of the bike and the chain drive. How your bike runs together to move you forward. From contact points to cables.

Brakes– Starting to work on how brakes work, types of brakes, how to change pads and parts of your own brakes on your own bike (some parts available from subterriania). All works are safety checked before leaving!

Puncture Repair– How to repair a puncture correctly on the move and at home quickly and safely…too does and not. This session is the most useful and cost effective. Advice on tyre type, sizing of inner tube and tyre sizing knowledge. What does 700×32 mean?? How do you replace a schwalbe marathon plus tyre??!!

You do not have to come along three weeks in a row but we ask that you do come along for all three classes if you start the course.

Please get in touch and get your name on the list.
