BikeSurfBerlin Bicycle Maintenance/ Repair 101 (WOMEN only!)

Starting 13:00 sharp on Sunday 26th May- please be on time.

Why women only? Based on a survey of BSB female members, this will provide a more comfortable learning environment. The instructors will be female.  

Will take place in the hinterhof (backyard) of this location: Alte Jakobstrasse 121 - Kreuzberg (you can ring on buzzer marked "POPE" if you need directions on how to access hintehof.

Things to bring (if possible):
  • Your own bike, so that you can learn about your specific bike
  • Any bike tools that you have, so that you can learn more about how to use them
  • Pen and paper to take notes
  • Snacks
Need no prior experience of bike maintenance/ repair (this workshop presumes you have little/ no experience with bike maintenance/ repair)

Topics to be covered:
  • Puncture repair
  • Brake adjustment
  • Saddle adjustment
  • Gear adjustment
  • Locking your bike
  • Berlin rules of the road
  • Protecting your bike from thieves
We can help you fix your own bike too (so bring it along). We have tools and spare parts.

We do appreciate any donation you can afford, for use in our BikeSurfBerlin project.


  1. Hi! this was really interesting to me but unfortunately I didn't know about it..there will be another one?

    1. Thanks for the encouragement.
      There were 8 people who attended and it was a positive experience.
      We are very interested in doing this again in the coming weeks.
      Will post the event on CouchSurfing, BeWelcome, this blog and our BikeSurfBerlin Facebook page.
      It will probably be a "mixed" class next time.
