Basic maintenance

Who's it for?

This is for you if you don't know how to look after your bike and want to learn how to carry out simple maintenance.

The basic maintenance course is provided at the subsidised cost of £5.

Why you should do it

Led by a cycle maintenance expert, you'll be in a small group with other beginners in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. It's a hands-on session which will give you the confidence and skills to keep your bike on the move.

What you'll learn

You will learn:

  • About the parts of your bike and what they do.
  • What to check before you ride.
  • How to adjust the saddle, handlebars, brakes and gears.
  • How to mend punctures.

What you need

It's best to bring your own bike to work on, but we can lend you one if necessary.


The sessions are held across Greater Manchester.
