Bike Maintenance Training, Sunday 12th February 2017
Sun 12 February 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 GMT
YOU MUST RESERVE A SPOT AND PAY TO ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP
This event is a one day Training Session taking place on Sunday 12th February 2016. This is a bit different than our normal sessions which provide free help, tools, and basic materials for repairs because it is for training volunteers to help out at these sessions throughout the year. So if you want to learn bike maintenance skills and practice them, this is the workshop for you. Attendees can also progress to achieve further qualifications via Bike Pool including international bike maintenance standards Velotech Bronze, Velotech Gold, Bike Leader and Bike Trainer through Bike Pool later in the year.
What you need to know:
It is a full day session, including a break for lunch, running 10:00-16:30 in the Nisbet Room (in the Main Facilities Building) at DRA FP Halls. The course will go over wheels, brakes, gears/derailleurs, chain, and preventative maintenance, and only costs £15. We will also give you £5 back if you help out at one session during the semester. Ideally you will bring your own bike and be able to work on it (and even get some new parts included in the cost) but if you do not have a bike just let us know. The course will be small and very hands with only 5 slots each day.
What you need to do:
Please book here to confirm a place and day. If you are interested but unable to do this weekend then get in contact and we may be able to accomadate alternate dates. If the course does not run then booking fees will be refunded or you will be offered a slot on the alternative day.
