Basic Bike Maintenance Course for Women

At Nottingham Bike Works


Three 2hr training sessions over three consecutive Tuesday Evenings.

Session 1. Tue 14th February 6-8pm

Session 2. Tue 21st February 6-8pm

Session 3. Tue 28th February 6-8pm

A practical class where you can learn at your own pace in the company of other women (though the instructors may sometimes be male) and plenty of support when you need it. This basic course is ideal for those with no previous cycle maintenance experience. Free refreshments available.

Together we will cover the following:

bike safety checks
essential tools for the home mechanic
key maintenance jobs
how to set-up your bike for maximum comfort and efficiency
tyres and puncture repairs
brake servicing and adjustment
basic gear adjustment
What we don’t cover- hydraulic braking systems, hub gears
You'll be provided with all necessary tools and parts. Free refreshments available.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you’re not arriving by bike (which of course we recommend) parking is available directly outside the workshop on Ayr Street. The High School tram stop is 400m away and the NCT turquoise bus service (77-80) stops even closer on Alfreton Road.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

We suggest you bring your own bike to work on. If for some reason you can’t, don’t worry- we’re can always provide one for you. This is a hands on course so come in comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
