Saturday 10th November

9am – 12.30pm – Module 1: Bike safety.

This will include: understanding the parts of a bike and what they do; carrying out a safety check to make sure the main components are working safely (wheels; handlebars; brakes; cranks; pedals; chain; saddle); cleaning your bike, cassette and chain correctly to ensure it continues to run smoothly.

This module will give you the confidence and knowledge to recognise the parts of the bike, care for your bike and keep cycling.

There will be a maximum of six learners in each class. We will provide all tools and equipment including bike stands, tools, aprons, etc. The tutor will be Rosina McGuigan, an experienced bike mechanic and trainer. The focus will be on the most common types of bike architecture and component e.g. V-brakes that most cyclists have.

You are encouraged to bring your own bike if possible to work on. If this is not possible for any reason, then we have a range of bikes of all shapes and sizes that can be used to work on during the sessions.

Please take our online quiz – Do You Know How To Maintain Your Bike? This will test your knowledge of bike maintenance and let you know if you would benefit from training. Many people over-estimate their own bike maintenance ability.
