1.2 Full-time-course: Bike Reparing – practical continuation ¦ 30.3.19

Squeak! Crackle! Grind! Those noises are often delivered to us for free by badly adjusted gear shifts, worn out chains and old bearings. If lights have also been on strike for months, the visit at a bike store seems to be inevitable. But that won‘t be delivered for free. Or is there another possibility?
Yep! Sure! Do it yourself! We show how to get along with those types of bike worries on your own.

Course topics:

– Adjusting a gear shift
– chains & sprockets: Service, wear identification & change
– Fixing lights

3. Fahrradfahren lernen – für Frauen* ¦ geplanter Zeitraum April & Mai 2019
Dieser Kurs ist noch in Planung.
Das Angebot richtet sich vor allem an Frauen* aus der Friedrichstadt, ist aber auch für Menschen aus ganz Dresden offen.

» Das Fahrrad hat mehr für die Emanzipation der Frau getan als irgendetwas anderes.« Susan B. Anthony, 1896 

Und weil das so ist, ist es Ziel dieses Kurses diese wundervolle Fortbewegungsart zu erlernen. Im ersten Teil beschäftigten wir uns mit den wichtigsten Verkehrsregeln und nützlicher Theorie rund ums Radfahren. Danach gibt es zu mehreren Terminen die Gelegenheit unter Anleitung fahren zu üben, natürlich auf einem sicheren Gelände. Als Abschluss und um das Gelernte auf die Straße getragen und wir machen eine kleine Radtour mit Picknick durch die Stadt. 
Vorläufiger Ablaufplan:

  1. Verkehrsregeln & Theorie (4h Stunden)
  2. Fahren üben (mehrere Termine á 2,5h)
  3. Fahrradtour mit Picknick

Wenn du den Kurs erfolgreich absolviert hast, erhältst du ein Fahrrad inkl. Schloss und ein Teilnahmezertifikat. 
Wenn du teilnehmen möchtest, schicke uns bitte eine Mail mit folgenden Daten:
– Name & Adresse
– Fahrerfahrung & Größe bzw. idealerweise die Schrittlänge (zur Bestimmung der Radgröße).

Weitere Informationen folgend demnächst.
