Beginner Bike Maintenance
This clinic covers everything you wanted to know about looking after your bike, but were afraid to ask. Great for anyone who's new to riding. It combines the most useful beginner topics in a single session. This clinic was created to give members a knowledge of bike parts and their function as well as how to diagnose basic maintenance issues. You'll also be coached on the most vital skill when you're out on the road: how to fix a flat.
By the end of the clinic, participants will:
· Be able to recognise mechanical issues
· Know what basic care and maintenance looks like, and how to provide it
· When it's time to see a professional
Please leave your own bike at home, where you can practice your new skills on it later. We’ll use demo bikes and gear in class to show you how it’s done.
Who’s teaching the clinic?
