Free Bike Maintenance Courses

City of Mount Gambier and Bike SA will host free bike maintenance courses in December 2020.

“As the weather improves and residents start thinking about dusting off a bike that may be sitting in the shed, they may need to do some maintenance,” City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer Aaron Izzard said.

Free bike maintenance courses will provide residents with basic and intermediate knowledge on how to fix a flat tyre and other minor faults.

“During the course participants will learn how to clean and lubricate the major mechanical working groups of a bike and get the inside story on puncture repair.”
