Basic Bike Handling Skills Workshops

Basic Bike Handling Skills Workshops
Learn how to ride (and crash) with style!

In addition to the bike maintenance workshops we mentioned last week, the club can also organise some professional skills training for our new riders (or any member who wants to go back to the basics and scrub out some bad habits).

These will be small classes about 90min long and will teach you the fundamentals of good mountain-biking such as body position, where to look, when to react and how to react.

If we have a big enough demand then we will organise 5 initial workshops so everyone gets a go.

Basic Bike Maintenance Workshops

Hey Everyone,

We are just putting this out there to see if there is interest for some free basic bike maintenance workshops for our members?

They’ll probably be an hour long and consist of a professional bike mechanic passing on some bike care tips and then have a Q&A session afterwards.

Things covered will be:

  • Basic bike maintenance
  • Pre and Post ride checks
  • Bike cleaning
  • Bike fit

We’ll keep the groups small and intimate (5-6 people) and if the demand is there we’ll put a few of these workshops on so everyone can get a turn.

What do you think? Comment on Facebook or send me an email at [email protected]
