Free bike maintenance session

As part of our Granton Goes Greener project, we are offering free bike maintenance sessions. The next one is on Thursday 18th October in the West (small) Hall from 16:30 - 18:30 Just bring your bike along for checking - "Greasemonkeys" experienced bike mechanics will give your bike a safety check and fix as much as they can. They will advise on anything else that needs to be done. The idea behind these session is to encourage us all to get back on bikes that have maybe been lying around in the shed for some time and start using them again.
