A practical class where you can learn at your own pace with plenty of support when you need it. This basic course is ideal for those with no previous cycle maintenance experience. It runs over a full Saturday at our professionally equipped community workshop. A home-made vegeratian lunch is included and refreshments available throughout the day.
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
We don’t cover- hydraulic braking systems, hub gears
You'll be provided with all necessary tools and parts.
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 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, we can 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?
