FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you’re not arriving by bike (which of course we recommend) parking is available directly outside the workshop on Ayr Street. The High School tram stop is 400m away and the NCT turquoise bus service (77-80) stops even closer on Alfreton Road.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

We suggest you bring your own bike to work on. If for some reason you can’t, don’t worry- we can always provide one for you. This is a hands-on course so come in comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
