Newham girl Jools knows how important it is to know some basic bike maintenance. Our #fixyourride stall has finished for this year but LBK do some great classes. We’ll be back in March!
It's #nevertoolatetolearn and @ldnbikekitchen helped me realise that tonight. After 7 years of riding various bikes, I finally popped my maintenance cherry in this AWESOME class tonight. It sounds like pure madness: cycling on pure luck for all these years (until my 1st puncture last month 😱) and never doing this before. There are many reasons, including fear, low confidence about stuff like this, utter embarrassment about not 'knowing everything' about this side of cycling AND not feeling like I had a safe and comfortable place to express that. Well, tonight that changed. I'll be writing more on that soon, but THANK YOU LBK for getting me on the road to fixing shit tonight - can't wait for class 2 next week! 🖤👩🏾🔧🚲⚙️🛠🌈
