The Bike Hub will bring together Adelaide’s cycling community and will be a one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about beginning or extending your cycling experiences. There will even be an opportunity for a bike tune-up!
Bicycle SA is the state’s largest provider of cycle activities, including over 15 organised events plus over 1,000 free rides every year. Delivering the most comprehensive community based Free Rides Programme in Australia and providing opportunities to be involved in volunteering and participating in major bicycle events and tours, Bicycle SA is committed to leading the way in the delivery of sustainable trail development in South Australia and building a cycling community. Make sure you visit their exhibit at World Environment Fair.
The Adelaide Community Bike Workshop
The aim of the Adelaide Community Bicycle Workshop is to operate as a community bicycle workshop co-operative dedicated to the repairing, and recycling, of bicycles. We aim to assist others to become more self reliant and confident with maintaining their own bicycles. At The Bike Hub, members will welcome the opportunity to assist you with learning how to:
- Repair and/or replace a tube.
- Undertake a basic safety check of your bicycle to identify problems.
- Simple steps to maintain your bicycle.
The Bicycle Institute of South Australia
BISA is a voluntary, not-for profit association that exists to advocate for a safe and pleasant cycling environment in South Australia. Established in 1974, BISA has been a strong advocate for cyclists in South Australia for over 40 years. At the Bike Hub, members will be keen to discuss all manner of cycling issues with Fair visitors. They will also be running a drawing competition for children.
The Adelaide Bike Kitchen
Adelaide Bike Kitchen exists to promote bike and DIY culture, helping you build a relationship with your bike, help you learn how to keep your steed rollin’ fresh, all in a relaxed environment where the catch up and shared dinner is just as important as the bike building and shared tips.
Bike Kitchen member Jack Ladd will also have a pedal-powered generator on display – the elegs-Tricity Direct set-up.
If you ride, or even if you don’t, if you know heaps or purely think a handlebar is a (perfectly respectable) type of facial decoration, come and see us at the Bike Hub – we’re heaps friendly!
Using 6 bicycles which can be plugged into a pedal powered generator the public are actively encouraged to get physically, emotionally and intellectually involved in both making and using electricity creatively. eLegs-Tricity Direct encourages the discussion of health, art, science and our role as citizens in the future of the electrical supply chain. Make sure you check out Adelaide Bike Kitchen at the Fair and get peddling!
