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.

I attended this course yesterday and it was exactly what I had hoped for, and more. Our instructor, Tim, was great. He explained everything very well and it was easy enough to follow his instructions. It feels really good to know that I can now remove the back wheel and fix a puncture. It’s not even that difficult once you know how to do it. We also gained lots of useful knowledge on how to keep our bikes in good working condition. I very much recommend this course.


Useful and fun

Great course! I’ve learned a lot and had fun. It’s always nice to realise that things are way easier than they seem (although still tricky!).
