November 2016 dates for #Hackney #Bike Workshop + welcoming new volunteers :-D

We are kicking off our November workshops on November 1st, in time to catch all those ghoulish Halloween rides and turn them into aerodynamic Santa’s sleds! If you are cycling a ghost ride, come along and we can help you fix all those screeching brakes, rusty wheels and missing parts.


The dates for our November workshops are:

  • Tuesday 1st November – Hackney City Farm, 7-9PM
  • Wednesday 9th November – Clapton Park URC at The Round Chapel, 7-9PM
  • Tuesday 15th November – Hackney City Farm, 7-9PM

Do arrive as early as you can to ensure we can help you. Contact us in advance if you have any queries!

Oh and remember: in October, we have introduced a new bike fitting method to our Pay What You Can fitting advice sessions.  Just as having the right posture improves your overall health and wellbeing , cycling on a bike that fits you properly will give you a more comfortable, natural ride and reduce discomfort, pain and even injury. Get in touch to book a slot and we will try all we can to get you in the best riding position!

As usual, we are all enthusiastic volunteers: we do not receive any regular contribution towards our running costs, and we must pay ourselves for rent and tools. We would really appreciate if you could donate generously on the night!

Oh, and Hackney Bike Workshop is still looking for new volunteer mechanics! Several of you came to help during the summer and your contribution was invaluable! However, attendance is a bit sporadic and we are getting quite a few more cyclists through the door, so we would still love to meet new volunteer mechanics, especially for our Wednesday session in Clapton! It is a great opportunity to cement your skills and perhaps to pick up a few news one, so, come along!
