Relaxed and informative session

October 2, 2022

I booked onto this course as a complete novice, having a bough a new bike I want to keep in good repair. Jacqueline was such a friendly and helpful teacher, and we went through setting up your bike, cleaning/lubricating, replacing an inner tube and fixing punctures, and tuning brakes. The workshop was spacious and clean with all the equipment you could want.

Would definitely recommend this introductory course for anyone new to bike maintenance!


Very helpful

Overall the course was good, giving the basics I need to gain confidence to commute to work.

One observation I had was that the instructor sometimes demonstrated the actions as opposed to allowing me and the other participants to do the actions.

This is the ideal hands-on opportunity to learn about how a bicycle works and to get experience of cleaning, adjusting, and fixing the parts most likely to need cleaning, adjusting and fixing. No question is a silly one here. As a result, I now have the confidence to go out on my own or with my children and know that I can ensure they can sit comfortably and safely, their bikes are in working order, and, perhaps most importantly, that I can fix a puncture and get us home safely.

Great introduction with a real focus on your confidence.

I’ve cycled a fair bit and played around with my bikes but this was the first course I’d done. I knew about most of the topics covered but still picked-up lots of tips (Rob massaging tyres is certainly stored away). The main thing I’ll take away is simply watching how two people, who really know their way around a bike, at work in a top notch workshop.
