An evening, classroom-based course that shows you the whats, whys and wherefores of bike maintenance. We’ll take you through the anatomy of your bike, look at how we make sure your bike is ready and safe to ride, and tackle the thorniest of all trail-side issues — the dreaded puncture! If getting hands on with your bike seems a little daunting, we want to provide a relaxed atmosphere where no question is too silly and you can take away the skills to look after your bike so that it can look after you. The course will cover:
- Identifying the bike’s components
- Performing a pre-ride safety check, identifying common problems and what to do next
- Fixing a puncture
- Fixing a broken chain
- Which tools to use, and how to use them safely and correctly
- Removing, installing wheels correctly
Please bring along a clean bike in general working order. We’ll provide everything else.
The course will run from 1800 to 2030.
This course will be run using our covid-safe practices. As with all our courses, full refunds will be issued in the event of cancellation due to local or national restrictions, illness or the need to self-isolate.
