Friday, December 16th

from 6pm-8pm

at The Mechanical Tempest, 128 Abel Smith Street, Aro Valley, Wellington


Thanks to everybody who came out to our “FLAT OUT OF HELL” workshop!  What an awesome afternoon!

Wenches with Wrenches is hosting it’s monthly Skill-Share/workshop/drop-in for the Woman and LGBTQIA cycling community on 13 December 2015.

The theme for December is BRAKES!

Brake related puns including “BRAKING THE LAW” and “GIMMIE A BRAKE” will be used extensively.

You can also learn how to fix your own brakes, including replace a brake pad or cable, and other essential bicycle maintenance skills.

As always, this is free, open to all skill levels, no need to book, just turn up and bring your bike along (or be prepared to get started working on something that has been donated).

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
