School holidays are looming and MIDWASTE and MidCoast Council is introducing a brand new workshop for kids to keep your bike in tip-top shape.

Kicking off from 1pm - 3pm on Saturday 7 October at the Green Bikes workshop at Tip Road, Tuncurry, you'll be able to learn from the experts how to maintain and repair your bike.

The "Green Bikes Fix It" workshop includes bike safety checks, fault finding, basic bike maintenance on tyres, drive train, brakes, wheels, brackets, pedals and frames - while you work alongside experienced cyclists and repairers. You will gain an understanding of safety and legal requirements and learn about our local cycling paths.

The "Green Bikes Fix It" workshop costs $10. Kids 11 years plus and adults are all welcome. Places are limited and we expect lots of interest, so register now to secure your place at:  http://www.midwaste.org.au/upcycling/  

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
