Staff bike maintenance workshop

Last week we ran a bike maintenance workshop for staff with the Bike Dr (and thanks to Your Move).
We ran the workshop to help staff get better acquainted and confident with their bikes – to help with fixing problems during commutes and recreational riding (and the benefits of keeping bikes clean and safe). Seven staff took part and found it very useful – even those with a brand new Norco cruiser (much bike envy in the group – google Norco scene bike and you’ll see what we mean). It was a good cross section of riders - regular commuters, infrequent riders and recreational riders.
Here’s a few comments from staff –
“I was a bit worried when Luke said first up we were going to change a tyre and fix a puncture – this is a bit too basic! I know how to change a tyre and fix a puncture – but during the workshop I learnt I’ve been doing it wrong all of my life – now its way easier!”
“The workshop was great and am confident that I’ll be able to fix any problems as I’m riding around”
“I found it very useful and I hope we get to do another workshop so I can get into the gears and cables.”
Hoping to run workshop 2 in the new year.

Great to see that Freo's Your Move points were well used! Great quotes from staff - it sounds like the workshop catered for a wide range of skill levels. You've received 50 points for running a bike skills workshop. Great pics again too!
