Event description

Description

Learn how to fix a bike with your child (Aged 11+). A unique, practical project to work on together where you can learn at your own pace with plenty of support when you need it.

You can buy a kids bike off us for an extra £25 or bring your own bike to work on. Either way, your child willl come away with a well-serviced bike.

This basic course is ideal for those with no previous cycle maintenance experience. It runs over a full Saturday at our professionally equipped community workshop. Refreshments are available throughout the day but please bring yourselves a packed lunch (we've got a microwave you can use).

Together we will cover the following:

  • bike safety checks
  • essential tools for the home mechanic
  • key maintenance jobs
  • how to set-up your bike for maximum comfort and efficiency
  • tyres and puncture repairs
  • brake servicing and adjustment
  • basic gear adjustment
  • we are NOT able to cover hydraulic braking systems or hub gears in this class

You'll be provided with all necessary tools and parts (£25 extra for a kids bike, yours to keep after). Please note they need to be 11 to take part and we will work on childrens bikes only - see our other Basic Bike Maintenance Course if you want to use adult bikes.

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 on Alfreton Road.

What should I bring/wear?


If you don't want to take advantage of our offer of a £25 kids bike to work on then you'll need to bring your own bike. This is a hands on course so come in comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty.


Can I book my child onto the course with me?


If they are over 11 then Yes! All children must come with an adult to supervise. One adult could also come with two children, but the price is per child attending the course.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
