Event description

Description

Bike touring is our very favouritest thing, so we're really excited to be offering this course for the first time this year in response to several requests. Hopefully timed just right for your summer adventure!

This full day course is for those lucky people planning to do a bike tour, maybe for the first time, who are wanting advice and practical instruction to give them the confidence to set off into the wide, blue yonder.


We will cover essential running maintenance such as punctures and brake/gear adjustments. We'll also look at common on-road issues such as broken spokes, rear derailleur damage, ripped tyres, snapped cables and broken chains (not trying to put you off here!) so at the very least you can limp on to the nearest bike shop.

We'll also make time to talk through preperation for your big ride, transporting a bike, luggage options, tools and spares to carry, and lots of other tasty topics.



We recommend very strongly that you bring the bike that you are intending to tour on.



FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you’re not arriving by bike (which of course we recommend), parking is available directly outside the workshop on Ayr Street. The High School tram stop is 400m away and the NCT turquoise bus service (77-80) stops closer still on Alfreton Road.

What should I bring/wear?

Bring your bike, along with any luggage carrying kit and tools you're planning to take with you. All tools and parts you're likely to need will also be provided, and you can buy bits from us if you want to take them with you. This will be a hands-on course so come in comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
