Bike maintenance classes for children

I Love My Bike!  Maintenance classes for children.  £5 registration fee.

Thursday 12th April 2018 1.30pm – 4.00pm at Northfield Ecocentre click here for booking details

An introductory bike maintenance class for children ages 5-11.


– naming parts of a bike

– bike safety checks

– how to pump up a bike tyre

– introduction to using hand tools

– washing and lubricating a bike

– how to test your brakes

– what I have learned today.

This class is about how to look after a healthy bike that isn’t broken.  It is not about how to repair a bike that is broken.

Your child should bring their own bike if they can, but if this isn’t possible then don’t worry because we have some children’s bikes that participants can work on in this class.

We will provide aprons, gloves, hand cream and all tools and equipment.


There is a £5 registration fee for this class.  Once you have registered you will receive instructions on how to pay.
