Fix your bike project at The Showroom

Lincoln cyclists can learn how to fix and maintain their bikes this summer at The Showroom.

Every Tuesday and Thursday, 10am to 4pm, from July 30 to August 22, Sustrans’ Active Travel Officer Trevor Marsh will teach people the benefits of looking after their bike, including demonstrations and advice.

The event is being delivered through the Access LN6 programme which aims to increase sustainable transport options in the LN6 postcode.

Ethan Tonks, 16, from Birchwood, went to the event on Tuesday and said: “I bike a lot so everything I learn here will be useful for me in the future.

“I can take any advice away with me and use it at home or if I get stuck on a bike ride and need to fix my bike.”

Trevor Marsh, Active Travel Officer at Sustrans and a member of the Access LN6 team, said:

“Through the Access LN6 programme, we’re working hard to increase opportunities to cycle which includes providing information about fixing and maintaining your bike.

“The sessions will be very informal and I would encourage anyone to pop along and come and see me,” he added.

The drop-in sessions will be held outside The Showroom on Tritton Road in a very relaxed environment, and are open to anyone.
