Come to Recyclistas to learn how to safely and effectively maintain, fix, and rebuild bicycles. Whether you are looking to better understand how your own bicycle works, get comfortable doing your own bike repairs, or to completely refurbish and build a bicycle, we are ready to help you get rolling!
If you want to go into more detail, we also offer a 15-hour Build Your Own Bike Course.
Course Details
The 3-hour bike repair class does not have a set curriculum, but are conducted on a bike-by-bike basis so you get to work on what is wrong with your bike. We teach everything from fixing a flat to building a wheel and stock all the new & used parts you might need for your bike repairs (cost of parts is not included in the course fee).
Unfortunately we are not able to teach suspension overhauls, hydraulic brake bleeding, or any e-bike repairs during the course.

Art Exhibition at Xchanges gallery, 2333 Government Street,
Suite 6E, Victoria.
In this series of small paintings of building exteriors and large-scale paintings of room, the artist is tackling how we perceive the world, and then flips it. Interiors are made to feel vast or empty. Exteriors are constricted.


Gage Gallery presents an exhibition of twenty portraits, twenty stories and one year of painting.  
Many of the heroes are local Victoria healthcare workers.
Come to the gallery during the show and enter into a draw to win a FREE PORTRAIT by the artist Shannon Holms.  Let us know who your hero is and why.  Is it your mother, your brother or your neighbour?  A hero will be chosen at the end of the show.
Join the artist for an online "Artist's Talk" on Saturday, February 19th at 10:00 am through the Gage Gallery's Instagram page:  gage_gallery_arts

A perennial favourite, the Sunday Lecture Series takes place over the course of four Sunday afternoons: March 6, 13, 21 and 27. Each illustrated lecture runs from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time via Zoom.
“It’s not over till it’s over” as the saying goes. Impressionism (ca. 1860-1886) and Post-Impressionism (ca. 1886-1920) are once again making headlines in the art world with exciting new exhibits and scholarship. The Sunday Art Lecture Series contributes to new ways of thinking about how this art movement began to reflect and frame modernity with four illustrated talks. 
The Sunday Lecture Series is a fundraiser for the AGGV by the Gallery Associates whose role is to volunteer, promote and support the AGGV through fundraising events and programs. Proceeds from the series go toward supporting Gallery exhibitions and programs. 
Tickets cost $75 for the series for Gallery members/students or $90 for non-members, each individual lecture, $25 for Gallery members/students; $30 for non-members and are available online at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/sunday-art-lecture-series-2022-tickets-230508486087

Maarten Schaddelee is a sculptor who expresses his deep passion for life through his art. His enthusiasm bursts through his work.
"A few years ago, my wife Nadine and I were in Florence, Italy. Walking through the beautiful narrow streets.  We walked past an old stone church and heard gorgeous, young voices coming from inside. They were rehearsing for a concert that night. Of course, we went to the concert.  That night I not only heard the music, I saw the music swirl around us. I will never forget the experience. It was a few years later that I remembered that fortunate experience and knew I had to put it in sculpture."
"My hands make the voice of my heart visible."  - Maarten Schaddelee
