Basic Course

A 90 minute course designed to teach inexperienced cyclists how to carry out basic repairs whilst out and about on their bikes. Your tutor will bring along a cleaned bike on a work stand with various mechanical problems and work with the group to fix each one.

Each session runs as follows.
