Hello people on bikes,

You called for more workshops, so here they are. Come join us for some short sweet sessions on making your ride better--both mechanically and with your riding skills.

Summer Workshops

Many people have been asking us for more workshops! So here it goes a host of late summer delights to get you riding even smoother. Join us for a commuter skills course, or short and sweet basic maintenance workshops. These workshops are all PWYC, $10 Suggested Donation. Register via email,

Commuter Skills - Tuesday August 26th, 5:30 to 7 at Del Crary Park

Review the knowledge and skills you need to ride comfortably and confidently through our city. You’ll also get advice about equipment, bike fit, and route planning (including an introduction to Peterborough’s network of trails and paths).

Air - Sunday August 16th, 12-1 at B!KE

Everything you need to know about tubes and tires. We’ll cover fixing flats, replacing tubes, preventing flats, and knowing when to replace your tires.

Brakes - Sunday August 23rd, 12-1 at B!KE

Learn the basics on rim brakes. Replacing pads, adjusting cables, and how to keep yourself stopping without a squeal.

Chain - Sunday August 30th, 12-1 at B!KE

Without your chain your bike is just an awkward scooter, yet this vital little part of the machine often goes ignored. Learn how to properly clean and lubricate the drive train. Adjusting shifters to avoid the “chkchkchkchk” noise will also be covered in this workshop.

Trent Shop @ Bata
Thursdays 2 till 6

Drop-in for a little north end DIY

Having trouble making it to the downtown shop early in the week? Pedal up to Trent and get your DIY done on campus! The LEC bridge is currently demolished so we will be set up in the Bata bike parking area on Thursdays from 2 till 6.

Until next time...
