Courses

Come and learn how to fix your bike!

These courses have been designed to tackle the most common faults with bikes and are aimed at people who are new to bike maintenance. The pace is relaxed, enabling lots of time for questions and classes are limited to just 4 to ensure everyone is well supported.

They are a great stepping stone to enable users to make more full use of our Bring Your Own Bike sessions that run every Wednesday – giving participants a chance to consolidate and grow their learning in a supportive environment.
