Stopped riding your bike because of a repair problem like a puncture, faulty brakes, bent wheels? Our thrice-monthly workshop can help, providing free instruction & assistance in all aspects of bicycle repair.workshop1

Mechanically-minded LCC volunteers offer support, advice & help. They might, for example, advise on rehabilitating an old bike, or on keeping your regular bike in trim. If you haven’t got the tools for the job, don’t worry. We are equipped with all the necessaries including stands to work at.

Workshop volunteer Ross gives his diagnosis.

Please bring parts if you know that something needs replacing. Many people initially come to diagnose a problem with their machine, and then spend the next few sessions getting stuck into a major task, often for the first time. You can also take your time to work out what other spares you might need to buy in, to be ready for the job.

Those who run the workshop give their time for free, and there is no set charge for the facilities. But we do ask people to make a small donation towards running costs, i.e. tools and rent.

Please arrive in good time & don’t start any major jobs that you can’t finish before 9pm.

Our long-running self-help maintenance workshop takes place three times a month, in two locations.
