Community Bike Shed Open Day

Dates & Times

Saturday 20 September 2014 | 9.00 AM
Saturday 20 September 2014 | 12.00 PM

The Community Bike Shed meets on the first and third Saturday of each month to repair old unwanted bicycles and to make them available to others in the community who may not otherwise have access to a bike.

There are lots of benefits to becoming a member of the Community Bike Shed. You can:

  • Learn new skills
  • Improve your knowledge of  bike mechanics
  • Help build bikes for disadvantaged local people
  • Meet new people
  • Use the tools and materials at the Community Bike Shed to do basic repairs on your own bicycles

Remember, you don’t have to be a bike expert or an experienced bike mechanic to join the Bike Shed.

All you need is an interest in learning and a willingness to work with others. While the volunteers enjoy repairing bikes it is also a social space to meet new people and get involved in a very worthy cause!

Interested members are welcome to come down and have a chat anytime from 9am onwards! A free BBQ will be held at the Bike Shed from 12pm.

This event is proudly brought to you by Canterbury Cares.
