“A couple of years ago, I was at The Bristol Bike Project at a beginner’s bike mechanics evening class that my friend was teaching.

As such, women are often seen as unable to use tools and hence not trusted to use them.

Women are perfectly capable of carrying out mechanical tasks and it is very important for them to have the space to learn new skills and practice existing skills without assumptions about ability based on gender.

We have volunteers on hand to help you learn and mend your bike, we also have lots of Bike maintenance books and resources*.

This is an open workshop, so drop in any time between 6pm and 9pm, no need to book a space.
