As we get ready to open our new space, we are planning a new monthly session for anyone that would prefer to fix their bike in non macho environment. It is open to women, trans, queers or anyone that feels it is for them. As a project, we recognise that the cycling community is dominated by (straight) men and that many women have had negative experiences when taking their bikes into shops where all the mechanics are male. We hope that this new session will provide an antidote to that, where no problem is too small and no one will snatch a spanner from your hand.
Our womens’ sessions will run from 12-5pm on the 3rd Sunday of each month, beginning on the 16th October.
