Bicycle maintenance classes

A key part of our business is teaching bicycle maintenance. We are experienced in training riders of all levels and ages, from complete beginners to advanced urban commuters, plus we can tailor courses for groups or individual lessons. Classes can be customized from start to finish, at any level, and provide a mixture of hands-on work and demonstration. We provide all tools and spare parts required and students bring their own bike to work on. 

Don't Get Stranded!: A Basic Bicycle Maintenance Class

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

Our Don't Get Stranded Bicycle Maintenance course is designed for all cyclists, with the beginning mechanic in mind. Here you will learn the basics of maintaining your bicycle.  This course will  make you a self-sufficient cyclist, enabling you to perform most of the common procedures carried out on a day to day basis. The information presented is applicable to all types of bicycles and it is also a great introductory class for anyone who would like a more thorough foundation before taking our Professional Technician training courses.  This course is also excellent for anyone who would like to maintain their bicycle in-house rather than always rely on a local bike shop.  The class includes our bicycle anatomy brochure and a multitool used for hands on demonstrations. Students are encouraged to bring their bicycle.
