Hello friends of the bicycle!
We have lots of exciting events coming up at Velocipede!!!
-- First of all, tomorrow night, monday form 7-9 is the next installment of our monday mechanic series, BRAKES. Learn about the different types of brakes, how they work, and how to adjust them...fun for the whole
--Then the very next day the rescheduled SIngle Speed Workshop, will teach you to simplify your ride on Tuesday the 27th from 7-9. Experienced mechanic, Neale Stokes will tell us everything we need to know about building up a single speed or fixed gear bicycle, from choosing a frame to getting a good chain line (and why that's important). Come with your questions--we'll come with the answers.
--In the future, Tuesday, March 13th from 7-9 we will holding a talk by antique bicycle collector, Sam Fitzsimmons on The History of the Bicycle--the beginning, and it's early social impacts. Sam will bring some examples of early bicycles for us to ogle. Maybe I'm a huge bike nerd, (I know I'm not the only one out there), but I get excited just thinking about it!!!
Also we at velocipede need volunteers interested in working with youth on saturdays from 4-6. We are starting up a youth mechanics class in Sharpe-Leadenhall, but we need people to help us out. Some experience working on bicycles would be helpful, but you don't have to know everything there is to know to help out. We really need extra hands!!!
If you're interested or know anyone who might be, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And while we're at it, we can always use more help!!!
Come by when we're open(wens and thurs 6-10, sun 2-6) and ask a collective member how to get more involved!!!
Hope you're all keeping warm, enjoy the snow!!!
-The folks at Velocipede
