Drop-in Bike Skills & Maintenance: Henderson
October 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Our Beginner Bike and Maintenance Drop-in Sessions are back for summer with sessions in Henderson, the Cloud, Mangere and Takapuna.
This session will be happening at the Henderson Service Centre – enter from Smythe Rd (follow signs for ‘Waitakere Central’), follow the driveway past the council buildings and Civic Centre, and park in the carpark at the end. Look out for our instructor team and a trailer load of bikes as they will be there ready to go.
At the session there will be separate ‘learn to ride’ instruction for anyone who has never ridden a bike, while other participants will practice skills such as changing gears, braking, bike control, signalling and more.
A mechanic will also be there to answer any maintenance questions including how to remove a wheel, how to adjust brakes and how to best look after a bike.
The drop-in session is a flexible format where you can take part in cycle skills lessons, bike maintenance, or a little of both. Unable to stay for the full time? No sweat, stay for as little or as long as you like. It is also a good opportunity to come along and ask one of our regional coordinators for more info on riding locally.
So, if you are keen to master the art of riding a bike or want to learn to fix a flat… pop in.
Bikes are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We don’t want you to miss a moment of the fun, so it is best to be there early.
No need to book for these sessions.
