In partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester we are pleased to be able to offer a series of basic and intermediate training courses

UPDATE: New course (basic, intermediate and (the new) On the Move) dates have been released for June to October 23 and can be booked online

Basic courses last about 2 hours and include:

  • What the parts of your bike are – and what they do
  • Things you should check before each ride
  • Simple adjustments – e.g.brakes and gears to make sure they work smoothly and safely
  • What tools you might need and how to use them
  • How to mend punctures
  • Cleaning and lubrication

The intermediate courses normally take place on a Saturday and last about 6 hours – they cover lots more detail and include some hands on work:

  • Brake adjustment
  • Gear adjustment/indexing
  • Inspection/fitting of cables
  • Chains
  • Bottom bracket and headset inspection/adjustment
  • Recommendations for routine servicing
  • How to identify an out of true wheel
