For our second workshop each student paired up to learn how to clean and repair a bike from the guys at Melo Velo.

We learned the basic parts of a bike and were given a checklist of things to look out for and to repair on our own bikes. 

Then we learned all about the workings of tires; how to take them off and put them back on and how to repair and change an inner tube. 

After lunch, we got a quick lesson on how to repair and adjust brakes and learned the proper way to clean and grease the gears and chain. 

We hope to donate the bikes and use some next week to make our bike powered phone chargers!
