Fix your own bike workshop
Learn how to change tyres and adjust your bike (lubricate chain, adjust brakes) with Bon Mécanique bike mechanics.
You can choose to book one of the following sessions: 10-11, 11-12 or 13-14. Limited spots available!
Location: Outside the entrance of Berzelius väg 7-9, Campus Solna.
Why you should learn how to fix your bike: Regular maintenance of your bicycle is beneficial not just for the bike itself but also for the environment. When you ensure that your bike is in good condition, it lasts longer and saves you money over time. Moreover, consistent upkeep also minimizes your carbon footprint and contributes to the promotion of sustainable cycling practices.
