Basic bicycle maintenance [Wigan]
Our Cycle Maintenance starter course will give you the knowledge to check your bike is safe to ride and enable you to cope if you have a problem whilst out and about. It is best to bring your own bike but let us know if you need one providing. The course lasts around two hours and our qualified instructor might cover;
- What the parts of your bike are – and what they do
- Things you should check before each ride
- Simple adjustments – e.g. brakes and gears to make sure they work smoothly and safely
- What tools you might need and how to use them
- How to mend punctures
- Cleaning and lubrication
Tools / bike stands will be provided. Please bring your own bike to work on (in specific cases a bike could be provided – please message us to arrange).
Once booked, if you are subsequently unable attend the course you must cancel your booking and/or inform TfGM as soon as possible.
Please note these courses are only open to adults (16+).
