Swap & Reuse HUB "Shrub" Co-operative
13 Guthrie Street, EH1 1JG Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This free Edinburgh Festival of Cycling event is for those who like the idea of cycle touring but don’t know where to start. Come and get a taste of what the possibilities are, learn some essential mechanical skills, and have a look at what the different options for kit are.
The event will be hosted by folk from the Wee Spoke hub who have experience of cycle touring which ranges from lightweight transcontinental rides to pottering around Cornwall by bike. The Wee Spoke Hub also runs regular drop-in DIY bike fixing workshop at this time which will be open as usual.
— The Wee Spoke Hub is a friendly, relaxed, and not-for-profit cycling initiative aiming to overcome barriers to cycling. Our DIY bike fixing sessions run 5pm-8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays. We provide a space to fix your bike, and the advice and tools you need to do it. No previous bike maintenance knowledge is required — the emphasis is on teaching you new skills in a non-judgemental way.
We are part of the SHRUB Cooperative, Edinburgh’s hub for creative reuse. The SHRUB provides a welcoming space for people to rethink their relationship with waste.
