During this month the Wanaka Community Workshop hosted a couple of training sessions. Each session attracted people in search of advice on how best to maintain their bikes.

Maintaining tires, chains and brakes are key to the safe use of cycles

The sessions were part of a much larger Biketober program of events which run right through the month of October.

Biketober is managed and deployed by WAO Wanaka as part of their work to protect healthy ecosystems and community wellbeing.

The particular focus of Biketober is to promote greater use of cycles for transport and recreation.

Its great to see community groups such as WAO Wanaka and the Wanaka Community Workshop collaborate to make a difference for our community.
