La Déraille Bike Co-Op

The snow has finally melted, the streetsweepers are out... and the roads are beckoning you to hop on our bike and get rolling. But you're going to want to make sure your ride is in tip-top shape before you hit the road. La Déraille Bike Co-Op can show you how to grease your chain. After realizing there weren't enough affordable options out there for cyclists in Sherbrooke, la Déraille Bike Co-Op was born. It aims to help people learn how to get their bicycles road-ready in a new workshop space, and give tips on people who might otherwise be intimidated by the cities' hills and traffic.

Our Townships reporter - and casual cyclist - Alison Brunette brought her bike to La Déraille to find out more about this initiative.
