1 Day Maintenance Course - Ride Safely & Get Back Home

Mapdec Cycle Works

This course is all about building confidence in exploring further on your bike. 

We go through pre ride safety and comfort checks along with regular service tips to give you peace of mind that your bike is ready for action. 

After that, we run through a series of common road and trail side fixes that will get you riding again. We will help with tool and spares you may want to carry, and some tips to get you out of even the most catastrophic problems. 

This will include things like:

  • Replacing Brake Pads
  • Replacing snapped gear and brake cables
  • Repairing a broken chain
  • Indexing gears
  • Removing a broken spoke and roughly truing a wheel
  • Repairing punctures & torn tyres

The course will generally start at 9:30 am, at lunch time there will be some time to practice and fettle with the skills you learnt in the morning. In the afternoon we put the bikes on the turbo trainers and will run through adjustments you can make to your riding position to be more comfortable. We aim to wrap things up around 3pm 

We will launch a series of dates for these soon, but for now please simply get in touch with some ideas of suitable dates. We need a minimum of 2 people to run this course, and a maximum of 4.
