Kia ora koutou, greeting from Wenches with Wrenches, Wellington’s women’s and LGBTQIA DIY cycling collective!

We are making some changes to how we run Wenches with Wrenches.

Rather than holding weekly drop-in sessions, we are organising monthly forums/skill-shares that focus on specific themes.

The next WwW forum will be Sunday, 15 November from 12-3 pm.  This month we will be sharing specific skills on how to take care of flat tyres and punctures on your bike.  All are welcome, regardless of skill level.  The forum will be held at the 128 Abel Smith workshop space and is free to attend. 

See the attached poster for details, check the website, or contact us for more info.

We are building a community of cyclists who identify as women or LGBTQIA to use the workshop during these times and request that other users refrain from attending, in order to ensure the maintenance of a safe space.

We will not be running our regular Sunday hours outside of our monthly forums, so please make sure you plan accordingly!

If you have any requests or suggestions for future themes for skill-shares, workshops, forums, or events, let us know!  We have some ideas in the pipeline for events around:

  • brakes
  • wheels
  • gears
  • commuting by bike
  • cycle touring
  • film nights
  • dealing with harassment on your bike

and more!  Stay tuned for more details on December’s forum, and see you this Sunday!

Warm regards,

The WwW crew
