Cycle maintenance on lambethcyclists.org.uk
Lambeth Cyclists are organising more cycle maintenance classes: sign up now for  the next set of five classes which will start on  24 January 2012

Feedback from earlier classes shows they have been very well received. As one participant put it:

"Simon is a fantastic, patient teacher who makes sure everyone "gets it". I found the course to be great value, having paid for itself several times over in savings on shop servicing. Couldn't recommend it enough."




The Classes
A new set of classes will run for five consecutive Tuesdays, on the following dates:

24 January 2012
31 January 2012
 7 February 2012
14 February 2012
21 February 2012 

Each class will start at 6:30pm and last for 2 hours. The trainer, Simon Bendel, works at Brixton Cycles

The classes cover

1st week: general introduction
2nd week: brakes
3rd week: gears
4th week: wheels/ tyres
5th week: fix any particular problems you have, follow up from previous weeks.

You will get a handout at the end of each week.

Each class will consist of 8 participants, working in pairs on their own bikes. Tools and workstands will be provided. Some spares can be bought at the classes.

The classes will be hosted at:

Lambeth Accord Building
336 Brixton Rd
London SW9 7AA

Preference will be given to London Cycling Campaign members who live or work in Lambeth. People often join the LCC to get a place as the classes are so popular. Join LCC now

The cost is £55 per person. A concessionary rate of £5 is available for people on some income related benefits - contact us for details.


If you are interested:
Please send an email  to lambeth_cyclists@hotmail.com with your address details and LCC membership number (if applicable) to sign up.

We will reserve your place and (assuming places are available) then ask you to send a Cheque for £55 payable to Lambeth Cyclists.

We will need proof of your connection with Lambeth (if not from the address) together with your LCC membership details and, if applicable, documents showing your eligibility for the reduced rate. If there are no places left we will put you on a waiting list for the next set of classes - we run them several times a year.
