Event Description

Making 86% of trips by walking, cycling and transit has been identified as number one among the 'Top 5' biggest potential Ecological Footprint-reducing contributions being used by the Greenest City Lighter Footprint "Feet to the Fire" Committee as a baseline.

This free workshop offered by Village Vancouver and sponsored by Bikes for All (http://www.bikesforall.ca/) is designed to take a non-mechanical look at basic bicycle maintenance and help anyone become more confident at many essential tasks around keeping your bicycle safe and operational in many driving and weather conditions.
