Bike Week 2019 - Free Bike Skills & Bike Maintenance Workshops
As part of NSW Bike Week, Blue Mountains City Council is offering two workshops for kids on Saturday, 21 September at Lapstone Netball Courts.

An Adults Bike Maintenance Workshop will also be held, covering basic bike maintenance, from 1pm-3pm (for 14 years to adults) at the same location.
What you need to know:
- Bring your bike, helmet and wear closed shoes, for all workshops.
- Kids must be accompanied by a parent or carer.
