I worked with another student and we fixed the chain and the gears. We also changed the tyre which involved taking the tube off, replacing it, putting it back on and pumping it up. I have changed tyres before but I learnt how to do it more efficiently. I really enjoyed changing the tyre. The man I worked with was respectful, smart, helpful and wise. At the end of the session the students provided their mentor with a sausage in bread. While we ate lunch the gentlemen shared stories with us. In the coming weeks I will be attending the Eltham Mens Shed and volunteering my time to help fix their bikes.
