    1 Day Bike Maintenance Course Reviews
    I came on this course because I recently bought a bike from your shop and I wanted to learn how to look after it properly. Craig was a great teacher and was able to explain things in a way that was very easy to understand. All the staff I have met at Cyclewise have been been extremely professional and I am impressed at all the things that you do up there in the forest. I will be back.

    The course and in particular Graham the tutor was brilliant. He is one of the best guys I've had as an instructor and the guys in the shop and the café made the day too.

    Please pass on my thanks to Nick for a great course. It exceeded all my expectations and the location was great too. I can not wait to get back up to the Lakes and see you all again.

    Nick was great, loads of info, knew loads and was very easy to talk to and ask questions. Superb.
