The sessions will last approximately one hour and will take place on Saturday 5 October 2013 at 11am and Saturday 12 October 2013 at 11am.
The bicycle maintenance workshops will take place at the Hub + Spoke workshop in Bush Fair. The sessions will be very hands-on and are aimed at cyclists that would like develop their bicycle maintenance skills. The workshops will last approximately two hours and will take place on Thursday 10 October at 2pm and Thursday 24 October at 2pm.
Commenting on the workshops, Councillor Jean Clark, Harlow Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Social Inclusion, said: “Following the success of British cyclists such as Sir Bradley Wiggins in the Tour of Britain and cycling enjoying an increase in popularity, these free workshops are an excellent way of helping to increase cycling safety. They ensure and encourage people to be knowledgeable about staying safe when out and about on their bicycles and also encourage cyclists to look after their bikes.
“By increasing people’s confidence and developing their cycling skills, the workshops will also hopefully encourage more people to get on their bikes more regularly and make use of the town’s comprehensive cycle track network – one of the best in the country!”
