atest press release from Wicklow County Council, issued on Wednesday, Sept 20th 2022…
Wicklow County Council is offering free bike repair workshops in its Bray and Wicklow Recycling centres this September.
The workshops – which last approximately an hour and a half – will introduce participants to the basics of bike maintenance. They will be provided by the Rediscovery Centre in Bray and Wicklow. Further workshops are planned with Bray Wheelers later in the year.
Bike maintenance including puncture repair, chain care and checking of performance of brakes and gears will be demonstrated. The aim is to ensure that participants can keep their bikes in tip top performance between servicing.
The workshops are open to all and youth participation is particularly welcome. Teens under the age of 17 can participate but must be accompanied by an adult. Why not make it a combined parent and teen summer event to learn together how to maintain your bikes.
Workshops will be held on the following dates and times:
• Friday Sept 23rd at 7.00pm – Bray Recycling Centre
• Sat 24th Sept at 2.30pm – The Murrough Recycling Centre, Wicklow Town
Good maintenance practice and repair skills will help us build a circular economy where less waste is generated, according to Jim Callery, Environmental Awareness Officer with Wicklow County Council.
Learn some new skills this summer and keep your bike functioning at peak performance with an extended lifespan.
The workshops can be booked with the Environmental Awareness Office of Wicklow County Council by email on email@example.com. Space is limited to 12 participants per workshop – so, book early.
