Over 3 hours we guide you through the essential principles of bicycle tuning & maintenance. Starting with an overview, we break down the intricacies of your bike’s drivetrain into easy-to-follow steps. Step one is introduced to the group as a whole, providing detailed instructions, before you embark on the rewarding journey of undertaking that step on your own bike with us guiding you every step of the way.  Return to the group, learn the next step, undertake on your own bike & return…  Rinse & repeat until completion.
