Introductory Maintenance


Our Beginner’s class costs £30 and runs from 10am to 3.30pm on the Saturdays listed below, and takes place at our workshop at 18 Queens Avenue, Greenford, UB6 9BX. It’s ideal for people who feel they know nothing about bicycle maintenance, though many people find it useful even if they’ve been around a bike for a while. The next class is on 17 April 2021. You can now book and pay via Eventbrite.

Class topics include:
Learning the names of the parts of your bike
M-check thorough safety check of your bike
Rear wheel removal
Replacing an inner tube
Fixing a puncture

Please noteYou can now book and pay via Eventbrite. This payment is fully refundable if national restrictions to deal with covid-19 require us to cancel the class.  

Do I need to bring my own bike?
As is the case for all our classes, if you’d like to bring along your own bike to work on, that would be fine. Otherwise, we have bikes you can practise on if you’d prefer to leave your trusty transport at home.  We require 7 days to organise a bike for you so please use the form below to let us know.

Beyond the beginning
If you’re looking to go beyond what we cover in the Beginner’s class, you can take your knowledge to the next level with three different intermediate courses: Cleaning, brakes and gears; Care and replacement of hubs, cassettes, chain and derailleurs; and Care and replacement of headsets and bottom brackets, and wheel truing.
