Sister Cycle Workshops

by CycleChick on July 23, 2013

sistercycleReason 3,487 to love The Wrench – over the summer they will be offering a series of workshops geared (no pun intended) specifically to women and LGTB folks who want to get down and dirty with some bike anatomy in a safe and comfortable environment. Fabian asked me to let y’all know about this great opportunity and I was all to happy to oblige. Did I mention that they are free? No I did not. They are free.

All Sister Cycle workshops happen at 7pm  Sundays at the Bike Dump on Main Street, just like the snazzy flyer says.

Additionally, there are other fine workshops happening throughout the summer, for sisters and non-sisters alike, like so:

July 24 (Wednesday), 6:00 – 8:30 PM – Brakes @ the dump
July 28 (Sunday), 12:30 – 2:00 PM – Gears @ the wrench
August 18 (Sun) 12:30 – 2:00 PM – bottom brackets @ the wrench
August 21 (W) 6:00 – 8:30 – 3 speed hubs @ the dump
August 28 (W) 6:00 – 8:30 – unsticking stuck parts @ the dump

Considering where I am at with the Guerciotti project, the one on bottom brackets can’t come soon enough. The “unsticking stuck parts” is a little late, but them’s the brakes.

Ha. Brakes. See what I did there? Awesome.



I could be looking at a BB overhaul on my vintage Bianchi this fall. May as well learn how to do it myself! Think I’ll join you at the W.R.E.N.C.H. on Aug. 18.

Hey thanks for sharing our event! I’m hoping we can get another women and queer bike series going in the fall and I’m eager to hear what folks would like to learn about!
