This is a fantastic opportunity to come along and learn some simple bike maintenance or get some on-road cycle training - all for free!

We are running a series of health fairs promoting cycling and nutrition aimed at marginalised communities in south Belfast. The Well on Wheels project aims to raise awareness of the benefits of cycling and offers practical help for people to get about by bike.

The health fairs will help the local community, including the many refugees and asylum seekers who live in the area, to acquire recycled bikes and free on-road cycle training skills. There will be bike maintenance demonstrations, for example, showing people how to repair punctures and information on route planning so people can get around Belfast more easily. Dieticians from Belfast Health Trust will also be giving advice on ‘food as fuel’ and basic nutrition facts to help people stay active. 

So if you're a complete novice and don't know your v brakes from your allen keys or you want to know more about eating healthily then come along and sign up to learn how to take care of your bike.
