We regularly run three types of Maintenance course:

1. Basic Maintenance

If you want to know how to keep a bike in good working order. Learn how to fix a puncture, adjust brakes, index gears and lubricate your chain correctly this course is for you.

Bite Size Bike Fix

Available in some locations only, our Bite Size courses are based on the basic maintenance course but split down in to four sessions of 2 hours each, covering; Bike Check & Adjust, Punctures, Brakes, Gears. Trainees will be able to book one or more sessions and build up their learning over time. Bite Size are offered across weekdays and weekends and early evenings.


Depending on your location, these course are sometimes subsidised by our partners. Visit your borough page to see if you are eligible. If you can't make the course but still want to try some home maintenance have a look at the videos by Park Tool on youtube - they have lots of basic (and not so basic!) advice available.
