The Bolts and Nuts, a cool website about a Toronto Bike Gang is sponsoring a Bicycle Maintenance Workshop this Sunday (April 30th) at The Music Gallery, located at 197 John St. (Google Map). It starts at 3 pm, and is weather permitting. Drizzle is okay… if cats and dogs start thumping people on the head… that’s not okay.
No registration, fees or elaborate song-and-dance routines required to take part (I’m kind of disappointed that I won’t get to dance for anyone…) just a bunch of cycling enthusiasts and a few mechanics who are offering to teach people how to perform maintenence on their bikes. Some of the mechanics are really experienced so we should be able to handle just about anything. They’ll have cables and tubes, that we’ll be charging a very nominal fee for ($2 a tube) when we replace them.
I took most of that above paragraph (basically all of it except the singing and dancing part) from an email sent to me from The Bolts and Nuts President Sean… Thanks Sean!
If anyone hasn’t seen The Bolts and Nuts site before, I highly recommend it. They are obviously nuts (no pun intended) about biking, and the site has a great sense of humour and attitude.
