Really useful and surprisingly good fun!
I did day 1 of the intensive maintenance course, led by Rob and Shona and I had such a great day. I started knowing nothing about bike maintenance beyond changing a tyre and came away feeling far better equipped to deal with minor issues and know how to spot major ones. The day had such a lovely friendly cheerful, supportive atmosphere and the time just flew by. I thought I would find it very useful, I didn’t expect to have so much fun. I can’t recommend it enough.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of bikes, and they teach you how to tune gears, change cables, sort brakes, fix a broken chain and just how to generally care for your bike. I no longer need to take my bike in for a service or every time I hear a funny noise from the gears!
Wish I’d done this years ago
Very good day spent with excellent and patient tutors. Great foundation in the fundamentals and I’ll almost certainly be returning for the Day 2 course. Thank you, I learnt loads.
Brilliant Intensive course
Did the Day 1 course, as instructed by Mike and Julien. Both were very good at explaining things, and were very helpful in demonstrations and guiding us through maintenance on our bikes. The small group size means the day is very relaxed and any questions get answered.
Excellent Course Very Informative
Could not recommend this course more. Really good and patient leaders , very knowledgeable and very clear. As a complete novice I found certain aspects of the course challenging but was helped every step of the way. superb demonstrations but plenty of hands-on time. If you like cycling you need to do this course
