Online Workshops

The Bike Hub has offered a series of hands-on workshops during the fall semester. The recordings of the workshops are available below. In the coming months, the Bike Hub will continue to offer workshops which can be found under the events page. These are personalized workshops brought to you by the Sheridan Bike Hub to help you navigate different types of riding conditions and learn how to do bike repairs.

  1. Introduction to Bike Repairs – Get familiar with the main parts of your bike that allow you to diagnose bike repairs.
  2. How to Fix a Flat & Tire Issues – A flat tire is a common issue that can prevent people from biking. After this workshop, you’ll be able to patch it up so nothing can stop you!
  3. Brake Workshop – Brakes are the main safety feature of your bike. Ensure that they function properly to enjoy a smooth ride.
  4. Route Planning and Riding on the Road – Learn how you should position yourself on the road, the types of infrastructure you will encounter, riding skills, and more.
  5. Fall & Winter Cycling – This workshop will prepare you for fall and winter cycling as the season changes with less daylight hours, more snow and wet conditions. Here is the Mississauga and Brampton snow maintenance schedules to check when your route is cleared after snowfall.
  6. Indoor Bike Exercises – Not riding this winter but don’t want to loose your muscle progress? This workshop provides exercises you can add to your workout that engages in muscles you use when you ride.
