Next summer our regional chapter of tekom will do a workshop: How to mend a
flat tire of your bicycle. Most likely not to do it in reality, but to write
a manual about it. I think we will do it in June. The best location might be
an original Bavarian beer garden :-)))

If you want to participate I can send you the date. On many flights you can
take your bicycle with you...

Greetings from Franconia, Bavaria, Germany, Europe, Earth
