The District of Saanich is supporting Bike to Work Week (May 25 to 31) commuters with free bike repair workshops.

Fixing a flat, properly inflating tires, tightening brakes and general bike maintenance are on the agenda.

Saanich partnered with the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society to create the workshops, which are meant to encourage new Bike to Work Week participants.

Each workshop is an hour long, is led by a qualified Bike to Work instructor, and will cover bike repair basics at three of Saanich’s new bike kitchen locations around the community.

The next sessions are tomorrow (May 23) at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific from 10 to 11 a.m., and at Saanich Municipal Hall, Wednesday (May 27), from 4 to 5 p.m.

Bike kitchens offer a dozen tools and a pump, available anytime.

RVSP to sustainability@saanich.ca to register for a workshop.

To register as a Bike to Work Week Team Leader for your workplace visit biketowork.ca/victoria.

Saanich has more than 200 staff participating in Bike to Work Week each year.
