Bike For Good presents LGBTQIA+ Bike Maintenance Workshop

About this event

In honour of LGBT history month we’re hosting an LGBTQIA+ guided bike maintenance session from 6pm-8pm on Wednesday 23rd February at Civic House.

The session will be led by two non-binary queer members of Bike for Good staff and is open to all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (including non-binary), Queer/ Questioning, Intersex and Asexual or Agender people. We welcome complete beginners, as this is a learning space with mechanics & volunteers on hand to work through problems together.

What to expect

The first half of the session is a guided maintenance and repair class, and the second half is free for you to work on your bike with the support of trained non-binary mechanics. Having said that our sessions are pretty flexible and if you prefer to work unsupported then you are welcome to!

We aim to provide a friendly and welcoming space, free of judgement. We offer a stand and tools and our skilled LGBTQIA+ mechanics will be on hand to give help and advice if you get stuck.

Future Sessions

This week’s session is taking place instead of our usual Spokes not Blokes bike maintenance session for women and all non-binary people. If there is sufficient demand we will consider running more LGBTQIA+ bike maintenance classes in the future.

Spokes not Blokes usually takes place at Bike for Good South on the first Tuesday of the month from 5pm-8.30pm and at Civic House on the last Wednesday of every month from 6pm-8pm. The next session is on Tuesday 1st March from 5-8.30pm at Bike for Good South.
