2nd & 3rd May 2020: Weekend Advanced Bicycle Maintenance Course
This 16-hour course will run 10am-6pm on Saturday 2nd May and Sunday 3rd May.

It starts with the basics and progresses into advanced bike mechanics; we will be completely servicing a bike over the 2 days. You have the option of gaining a Cycling UK (formerly CTC) certificate of attendance in advanced cycle maintenance.

If you have your own bike you can do all the repairs on that so by the end you will have a fully serviced bicycle (service worth at least £90, and now the knowledge & skills to repeat this many times!), or you can use one of our bikes to practise on. If you don't have a bike then we may be able to provide you with one at low cost that you can keep at the end of the course  please get in touch for more info.

NB if your bike is carbon or is worth a lot of money, for insurance reasons (and peace of mind), we may advise you to borrow one of our bikes to carry out the servicing on.

The minimum cost price of this course is £135 for 2 days with qualified instructors (Cycling UK Tutor, City & Guilds Level 2 Mechanic).  This is significantly cheaper than similar courses elsewhere (typically priced at £250), because we feel its important for our community to have access to cycle training and resources. In this spirit, we encourage you to pay more if you can afford to do so as it really helps us in our work towards making cycling affordable and accessible. Thank you!

If you wish to gain Cycling UK (CTC) accreditation in Advanced Cycle Maintenance, there will be a further £20 charge that covers the administration costs of certificates from Cycling UK. This optional extra can be paid for at the course.

In addition, with the ever-increasing developments in bicycle design, there are certain components that this course does not cover as part of its standard curriculum. For example, there are now many different types of bottom bracket and cranksets, however, this course covers only square taper and Hollowtech II. If you want to check something specific before booking, please get in touch.
