CORPORATE GROUPS

ON-SITE INSTRUCTION SESSIONS

These sessions are geared towards commuters and take place within end-of-trip facilities around Melbourne’s CBD. They are short introductory sessions covering the essentials, such as learning how to fix punctures. Our mechanic will arrive on site with some tools and a bike and run through basic maintenance with your group, including time for questions.

The session is costed at $200 (+ GST) and runs for approximately 1-1.5 hours. Sessions can be adjusted to accommodate your group’s level of skill and experience.

VOLUNTEER DAYS

We often conduct volunteer days at our premises in Docklands to facilitate corporate social responsibility programs. Staff will get hands-on experience in bike maintenance by helping us service donated bikes that will be used within our many social programs.

An experienced mechanic will spend the day (usually 3-6 hours) running volunteers through some basic maintenance and repair skills to help ensure donated bikes are safe and running smoothly. The volunteer days require a $500 donation as part of the service.
