Bike Maintenance workshops


We run regular bike maintenance workshops in partnership with local bike shops – Cycle Heaven, Giant York, Halfords, Get Cycling, Cyclestreets and CycleWorks. All free and, would you believe, a lot of fun!

The session is usually led by a bike mechanic and a member of the York Bike Belles friendly team, in a relaxed environment. We cover bike safety checks, roadside puncture repair, essential bike cleaning, lubrication, and adjusting brakes and gears if time.

We always offer cheese and wine (evening) and coffee and cake (during the day) and time to meet other people for chat. Somehow this makes puncture repair much easier !

The sessions are free, but donations on a “Pay as you feel” basis are welcome to cover the cost of the refreshments. Family-friendly – children are welcome.

Next workshop will be in early 2020.
