Dates for the course which you must attended all sessions are 11th,18th,25th November with the last session on the 2nd December
During the course, you will be given instruction on stripping a bicycle and rebuilding it using new or recycled parts. Working in pairs you are likely to rebuild one bicycle during the course and we aim to show you as many different parts and components during this period. If you are interested please get in touch. Places are limited by application and we are looking for people who can attend every session of the course. We allow 8 people per course. Tools and protective equipment are provided during these sessions. Obviously, some mechanical ability would be preferred.
We will also be running a series of bite size courses that focus on puncture repair and tyre and wheel anatomy and also M-checking your bike, the components and what they are and the correct use of your gears. Dates and times for those courses will be announced shortly.
