Introduction

This class runs on the first Saturday of every month (except January, March and December), and is ideal for people who feel they know nothing about the subject but many people find it useful even if they’ve been around a bike for a while.

Parts of the bike
Diagnosing problems and basic adjustments
Rear wheel removal
Replacing an inner tube
Fixing a puncture

Intermediate – Cleaning, brakes & gears

This lesson is for people who want to know a little bit more than the basics from the first lesson. The first two classes of 2017 are on January the 21st and then March the 4th, but after that, it takes place on the third Sunday of every other month – May the 21st, July the 16th, September the 17th, and November the 19th.

Cleaning a bike, including your own
Lubrication
Brakes: adjustments and fitting new blocks on your own bike
Gears: common problems and adjustments

There’s lots of hands on aspects – you will be getting your hands dirty putting what you have learnt into action. There is also time throughout the day to ask questions.
