Basic Bike Maintenance

No matter what level of rider you are, basic bike maintenance is a fundamental aspect of keeping you cycling.

About This Project

“Pendle Triathlon Club would like to thank Go Velo for all the help and assistance you have given us over the past few years.”

 

No matter what level of rider you are, basic bike maintenance is a fundamental aspect of keeping you cycling.

 

Having a solid grounding in bike maintenance helps ensure that riders can prepare bikes safely before taking them out. It also means they can fix common problems that occur during a ride, whether this is on or off the road.

 

 

Making Maintenance Accessible

 

“I feel a lot more confident in terms of maintaining my bike.”

 

Go Velo holds regular bike maintenance courses locally, enabling people to attend them easily.

 

The two-hour basic bike maintenance course helps riders make sure they can keep their bikes in good working order.

 

The course covers:

 

  • M checks
  • Identifying signs of wear and tear
  • Changing inner tubes
  • Puncture repair
  • Adjusting brake blocks
  • Indexing gears.

 

The M check is a quick and memorable easy-to-perform routine for checking your bike is in good working order and safe to ride, every time you take it out.

 

It covers wheels, saddle, chain, pedals, handlebars and brakes.

 

Basic bike maintenance is very much a hands-on course, and riders learn the fundamentals by carrying out their own checks, while learning from an experienced bike mechanic.

 

It gives new riders a basic and valuable set of skills, but is also useful as a refresher course for more experienced cyclists.

 

“Our members particularly love the bike maintenance courses that Go Velo organise. When they’re held locally we have no problem attracting
people to participate.”

 

 

For more information about Go Velo’s bike maintenance courses, please fill in our contact form, and we’ll be back in touch as soon as possible.
