FREE Bike Mechanic Training for Bikebox Volunteers

We’re gearing up to get the Bikebox in action and AT is offering us a FREE full day comprehensive workshop to skill up our bike mechanics.

Bikebox will be open weekend days initially with a view to adding more opening hours later.

If you’re keen to be part of the Bikebox team and can commit to volunteering a couple of hours every month or so, this training is free for you! There are limited places so book yours ASAP by emailing bikeboxwaiheke@gmail.com or sending a text message to 021 0779174.

You will learn:

  • how to do basic bike repairs
  • bike maintenance
  • how to give others advice on keeping bikes safe and mechanically sound

Bring lunch, we’ll take care of morning and afternoon tea.

Bonus: bring a bike in need of some maintenance if you have one so we can work on it during the training.

Where: Bikebox at the Sustainability Centre, WRT, 0 Mako Street

When: Sunday 15 August 2021 9:30am-4:30pm

If you have any questions about volunteering, get in touch!
