What is Open Workshop?
Open Workshops are our drop-in hours where you can use our tools and parts to build, maintain and repair bicycles. If you need support, we have volunteers on hand to provide advice and guide you through bicycle repairs. Please note that we are not a bicycle shop and may not have the parts you require to repair your bicycle. We recommend sourcing the parts you need in advance or sending us an email with any queries before coming into Bicycle Garden.
Bicycle Garden is open every Thursday from 6pm to 9pm at the Sydney Park Cycling Centre in Alexandria.
Our philosophy is to educate and empower. We therefore adopt a hands off-hands on learning philosophy. This means that you will be doing the bicycle mechanics yourself, so be ready to learn and get greasy!
Donations help to keep our community space going. We recommend a donation of $5 per hour for use of our workspace, and accept cash or electronic payment. No person will be turned away for lack of funds.
If you require parts, we have a pay-what-you-can arrangement for secondhand parts and set prices for new items.
