Justin is also having fun
If you’d like to volunteer at BACK2Bikes, and have some time during weekdays, we’d love to train you in bike maintenance. Come along to 525 Williamstown Road, Port Melbourne on a Monday and talk to Mike, Justin or Robin, or call on 0416 988 516.
The training is very much hands on, we will provide tuition and guidance as you need it. We’ll give you a skills matrix to work through, so that you can track your progress, and make sure you have covered everything along the way.
We have all the tools you will need. We can advise you on what to buy if you would like to get your own tools.
Wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, and please wear close toed footwear to protect your feet in the event of you dropping something, or accidentally stubbing your toes. Long hair should be tied up for safety. The workshop is a smoke free zone.
You’ll be encouraged to refer to internet resources such as www.sheldonbrown.com, and various other internet sites that have tips and suggestions.
If you want to turn “pro”, we’ll send you along to Bicycle Training Australia, for a Cert II or Cert III course, www.bicycletrainingaustralia.com.au, you can do the required practical hours with us.
