Sign up for Lambeth Cyclists bike maintenance classes: next set start in Brixton 26 June 2012
Prepare your bike for summer cycling by learning how to do the basic maintenance to keep your bike on the road. Save money, develop your skills!
Lambeth Cyclists are organising more cycle maintenance classes: the next set of five classes will start on 26 June 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 will run for five consecutive Tuesdays:
26 June 2012
3 July 2012
10 July 2012
17 July 2012
24 July 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 be held at
Lambeth Accord Building
