Perth Bicycle Collective starting

Transition Perth
A joint project between Transition Perth and The Table Community FoodCentre, and result of the October Resiliency meeting held in Perth, The Perth Bicycle Collective is ready to roll!

 Piotr Pawlowski and Peggy Land are co-leaders for the project which aims to encourage a cycling culture in Perth by offering monthly basic maintenance workshops to the public and to encourage safe cycling in collaboration with the OPP's Community Services Officer, David Bird.

 Participants will be shown how to clean their chains, tighten their brakes, patch or replace a tube and true a wheel by themselves. They are encouraged to bring their own tools and parts if possible but some tools will be on hand.
The workshops are free and will be held on Saturday May 24 indoors at the Crystal Palace, Saturday, May 24, during the Farmers Market, when safety information will also be available.

 Other dates are: Saturdays from 2 - 5, behind
The Table
The Table at 190 Gore Street, June 2, July 12, Aug. 9, Sept. 13.
Bring your bikes, and any tools, and be prepared to get to work!

Your roads look a bit like ours, not much room for a bicyclist to ride safely. The city is meeting about ways around it, but there are no easy solutions without paving new sections. - Margy

It's a great initiative. I used to cycle all over the place. Nowadays I'd have trouble getting onto one, never mind staying on! YAM xx
