The Bike Workshop at The Factory Southside Youth Space

The Bike Workshop at The Factory Southside Youth Space

As part of the National Bike Week cycling festival, Limerick Youth Service (LYS) will hold two bike repair workshops at The Factory Southside Youth Space and the Northside Youth Space on Monday, June 11th and Thursday, June 14th respectively.

The ‘Repair Your Rothar’ workshop are open to all members of the public who are invited to bring their bicycles, be they high nellies, tricycles or high speed mountain bikes, to be fixed.

‘Punctures, brakes, saddle adjustments or even scrapping away the old rust, we can do it all,’ said Des Galligan, LYS’s Bike Project.

‘Simply bring your bike to our youth spaces and our team will transform it for you,’ said Des, adding ‘we’ll have plenty of activities to keep up entertained while you wait.’

The event at The Factory will run from 10am-6pm on Monday, June 11th with the Northside workshop open for business on Thursday, June 14th from 3-6pm.

The workshops are also a great opportunity for young people and their families to explore the Southside and Northside Youth Spaces and learn more about LYS’ Bike Project.

The Factory Southside Youth Space is located at Galvone Business Park while the Northside Youth Space is based at Ballyanty, Limerick.
