Bicycle Workswap

Come along to Pleasley Hill’s first free community Workswap. A fusion between a workshop and a get together to share skills, knowledge and equipment.

  • Learn more about bicycles and bike maintenance.
  • Share tools knowledge and bike parts.
  • Have your bike fixed for free.
  • Share what you know about bikes with others.
  • Bring along parts to swap, donate or build and fix bikes

Bicycles are the cheapest, most efficient form of transport there is. On a bicycle you can travel up to 1037 kilometres on the energy equivalent of a single litre of petrol, and you can travel 3 times faster than you can walk, for the same amount of energy. And with Pleasley Hill only a couple of miles from town, they are perfect for getting about.

Many of us own bikes, but they sometimes need a bit of work. So come along to the Workswap and learn how to keep your bike in top condition. See what makes bicycles so great, share old parts and get new ones or just come along and share what you know. So if you are young or old come along.  As long as you are 12 years old or over you are welcome, even if you don’t own a bike! Children under 12 can come along in the afternoon to have their bikes repaired, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Bring some food and drink (limited tea available) for lunch. Whatever bike(s) or parts you want to swap/donate/share/fix. And any tools you can, especially specialist bike tools.
