The Bike-ology fam is here to keep your bike in tip-top shape and keep you riding dirty (or clean, we don’t judge). 

They hold bi-weekly maintenance workshops to diagnose and fix your bicycle problems.  They also hold second-hand bike sales and will give you all the info you need to know if you’re in the market for a new (bicycle) best friend. They also get second-hand bikes back to road-worthy condition.

Bike riding has heaps of bennies, it’s been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve general fitness and reduce risk of heart disease and cancer, and even provide empowerment and improve social life!

If you want to join the gang, they hold workshops on Tuesday and Thursday 12-2pm. Tuesday in the Arc precinct corner of the Quad, Thursday at the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre.


We're back baby!

Workshops as normal 

 Tuesday 12-2 @ Arc Offices

Meet the 2017 Bikeology Coordinator

Hi! I’m Ryan and I’m your 2017 coordinator. When I’m not helping make your bike ride better, I’m likely engineering in Biomed, playing piano, or collecting hobbies. I’m also American, so that might color my views. I’ve loved bike repair ever since I learned that messing with the bits on my bicycle could improve my bike. I’ll be running the weekly workshops and managing the program in 2017, so bring any questions, comments, or suggestions to me. See you in the saddle!
