Learn how to become self-sufficient with Cyclery Northside women’s workshop night series. Over three evenings this winter, they will teach you the basics of bike maintenance, the ins and outs of road bikes and the mysteries of mountain bikes. Turn up to all three and you’ll even get a special goody bag – and a certificate of mechanical competence! The first one will cover the basics, the second one is focused on road bikes and the third workshop will focus on mountain bikes. All three sessions are free of charge! 


Thanks to the team at Park Bikes ladies can engage and involve themselves in a maintenance workshop in the store in Olympic Park. Here you can learn basic bike mechanics like how to take your wheels our, repair a puncture or adjust you brakes. There will also be time to practice some essential bike skills and the Heart Foundation will bring you up to speed about the benefits bike riding can have on your health.

Interested in hosting a Gear Up Girl workshop?

Bicycle NSW Gear Up Girl workshops are all about getting more women out on the bike, building confidence and knowledge, having fun, and networking with bike-minded women. They also aim to help build positive relationships between women who ride and local organisations that offer cycling related products and services.
