TRACTION 'MOBILE' WORKSHOPS & COMMUNITY EVENTS
TRACTION delivers mobile 'Bicycle Build' programs for communities in need. These workshops are typically delivered in conjunction with local schools, Councils, land/community development businesses, and community organisations. The workshops provide an experience that young people will never forget and:
TRACTION Mentors facilitate each workshop and provide technical assistance and positive role-modelling. The workshops are perfect for those interested in learning more about bicycle mechanics and maintenance. Participants will disassemble, re-assemble and quality-check a bicycle, and subject to available funding, may even get to keep the bicycle at the end of the day.
