Our maintenance classes provide you with the knowledge to get the best from your bike. We’ve broken the mystery of bike mechanics down into bitesize chunks – 2  hour sessions, mostly concentrated on one particular part of your bike. Our instructor running the course is a qualified bike mechanic with a vast knowledge of bikes and cycling.

We are offering 6 weeks of Basic Gears maintenance training – This is completely FREE!

the classes will begin on Thursday 19th of January 2017, there will be a new course every 6 weeks.

Spaces are limited so please call to book on 01343 549571

 

It is recommended you take your own bike along, so that you can learn how to fix that specific bike, but we can provide a bike for you to work on if that is more convenient.

Our classes take place at our base in Lossiemouth – it can be quite cold as it’s an old industrial unit, so wrap yourself up to keep warm. Light refreshments will be available throughout the course.
