Beginners Maintenance Training Our beginners course is a great introduction to bicycle maintenance and is suitable for people who have never touched an allen key in their life, or people who have muddled through a puncture repair but would like to be slicker. After the course you will be able to check your bike over before a ride to make sure it is road worthy, or repair a puncture much more confidently. You will also pick up some tips for keeping your bike in good shape, hopefully making your servicing intervals less frequent. The Beginners Course Covers: Roadside puncture repair – removal of wheel and tyre M-Check (learning how to check that major components are safe and roadworthy, making minor adjustments) Removal and refitting of brake blocks, balancing brake calipers Adjusting brake cable tension Preventative care e.g. how to clean and lubricate your bike parts Please note: We may have to cancel sessions with fewer than 3 participants, and move participants’ bookings to a suitable future date Maintenance course cancellation policy: Participants can switch course dates (subject to available spaces) or cancel their course a minimum 1 week before the course date. Cancellations/date changes after this point can not be processed and will lose their course fee. Sorry, this event is now sold out.
