Perfect Basics Crashcourse

This was a very useful course, covering everything about the very basics of bike maintenance and made it seem easy. Tim, our guide, gave us pointers in what tools were worth having for looking after a bike, and the workshop was very relaxed in a small group.


Great course - thanks

The instructor was friendly and patient and clear.
I had all my questions answered and feel much more confident.
I may return to the women’s evenings to work on my bike with support in future.
Thank you!

Thought it was great. Low key relaxed, small group. Small portions of instructions followed by practical attempts. Feel more confident and ready to embark on the intensive course

Compact course run by very friendly volunteers expert in bike repairs & maintenance. What more could you want! Lots was covered over the course of the day. It showed me not only how to keep my bike on the road but how to make it last longer. Thank you very much. Best bike shop in Bristol by a clear mile.

My wife & I attended this course yesterday morning. It was excellent. Numbers are limited to 6 enabling everyone to have space to work on their bikes in the workshop. On arrival we were greeted by Tim, our instructor. We were kitted out with aprons & teacoffee was available. There’s a lot to get through in 3 hours & Tim took us methodically through everything listed on the course website – for each item he demonstrated what was required & then we were able to practice this on our own bikes, making full use of the tools available in the workshop. All in all 3 hours raced by & it was a most enjoyable morning. Tim was an excellent teacher & we came away feeling more confident about routine bike maintenance. Highly recommended.
