If you feel a bit clueless about how to look after your bike, then this is the workshop for you. The friendly and approachable guys from Omafiets Dutch Bicycles (omafiets.com.au) will take you through stage one of bicycle maintenance. So feel free to ask as many questions as you want, safe in the knowledge that no question will sound stupid. The main areas that will be covered are cleaning and lubricating your bike chain, removing your wheels and fixing punctures, and adjusting your brakes. You won't need to sacrifice your precious social time to learn these rad life-skills. Because there will be $10 cocktails for workshop attendees at The Lord Gladstone after!
