Event description

Description

Does your bike have a flat tyre that you don’t know how to fix? Is your bike suffering from some brake problems? Does the thought of bike repair costs put you off cycling?

Well, why not come along to one of our free Bike Repair sessions and get a bit bike savvy?

Our sessions are designed to help you get to know your 2-wheeled steed and to provide you with the skills to repair your bike and save you from unnecessarily throwing your bike away or leaving it to rust away unused.

The session will cover the most common problems that you might encounter when exploring the world by bike. This will include:

  • Flat tyre (replacing an inner tube and puncture repair)

  • Broken chain and broken mech hanger (how to fix the chain or temporarily shorten it to make your bike a singlespeed machine)

  • Brake problems (adjusting your brakes)

  • Slipping or crunching gears (indexing your gears to work smoothly)

All you need to bring is you (sporting some old clothes as bicycle fettling can sometimes be a messy business) and your bike. Tools and refreshments will be supplied.

Workshops for adults only.

Falkirk Active Travel Hub is next door to Revive Falkirk.
