Sister Cycle 2017

The Bike Dump
Sister Cycle is an annual 6 week series of bicycle repair workshops for women, trans*, femme & non-binary people, located at our fine city's original community bike shop: the Bike Dump.

The goal of Sister Cycle is to make the empowering knowledge of bicycle repair more accessible (and fun!) for folks generally vastly underrepresented in bicycle (shop) culture.

All workshops are free, but donations are highly appreciated and help our community bike shop programming continue.

No prior mechanical experience necessary, just come on down and expand your knowledge / skillset / community!

If you're interested in helping facilitate a workshop (we can help / you don't have to do it alone!), please contact Sarah at volunteer@thewrench.ca
