Sign up now - we only have limited places left for the course starting 10 April 2012.

We are now taking bookings for the next set of  Lambeth Cyclists cycle maintenance classes.

Lambeth Cyclists are organising more cycle maintenance classes this Spring: the next set of five classes will start on 10 April 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:

10 April 2012
17 April 2012
24 April 2012
1 May 2012
8 May 2012

Each class will start at 18.30 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 take place at the Lambeth Accord Building at 336 Brixton Road, SW9

Preference will be given to London Cycling Campaign members who live or work in Lambeth. Join LCC now
