Cycle maintenance course

This is a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited course.

Do your gears jump? Do your brakes no longer stop you? We can help you to learn to fix these problems!

By keeping the group sizes small, you will work together with fully trained and qualified City & Guilds cycle mechanics to improve your knowledge of bike maintenance.

Our aim is to ensure that you will leave at the end of the course with the confidence to fix common problems on your bike. There is a practical element to the course, so be prepared to get your hands dirty.
