Saturday 2nd February

1.30pm – 5pm – Module 2: Wheels, tyres and punctures. This will include understanding of how to care for wheels and tyres to avoid punctures; the importance of properly-inflated tyres; and how to identify and repair punctures.

This module will give you the confidence and ability to carry out vital bike maintenance you will defiantly need at some point on your cycling journey and keep you cycling. If you have children you will leave confident with key skills you can pass on to them.

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.
