Boost your bike DIY skills.
This bike maintenance session will take the format of a leisurely ride with basic bike maintenance training incorporated. The session is designed to give you the skills and knowledge to keep your bike safe and fun to ride. You'll learn how to deal with things that can go wrong when you're riding and how to keep your bike in great condition.
The ride lasts around 1 hour and will include training on:
- Parts of the bike
- The M check- a simple check to do before each ride
- Simple and easy adjustments such as brakes and gears to ensure they're working safely
- Inflating tyres and repairing punctures
- Keeping your bike clean and lubricated

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Do I need to bring a bike?
We do have a limited number of bikes available to borrow from the Quorum Business Park pool bike scheme. However if you do have your own bike, please bring it along provided it's in a roadworthy condition.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing and shoes. A lightweight jacket may be useful in case it does rain. Helmets are not essential but are recommended and can be provided if you do not have your own.
What happens if it's raining?
No one likes getting soaked so we will try to offer some training unless the weather makes it unsafe to do so. Our instructors will always try to find a sheltered location or offer you an alternative activity in bad weather.
In the event of bad weather, the ride may be cancelled at short notice - we'll contact you to let you know if this happens.
