Event description

Description

Bike for Good offers a wide range of mechanical training programmes, from teaching children the basics to empowering everyday commuters with the skills to keep their bike on the road and avoid heavy workshop bills. We looked at the feedback from previous year and made changes to the courses to suit every ability

Classes are now designed to equip you with more specific maintenance skills and we achieve that through more structured learning.
