We will take you through each process step by step with lots of opportunities to ask questions along the way -So why not come along and see how easy it really is to become a better bike mechanic.

    This course will not only show you just how easy it is to keep your bike in good working order but will also give you lots of great trail / roadside repair tips to get you home safely should anything go wrong whilst you are out riding.
