Basic and Trail side Maintenance

All training courses are current suspended
As we have now taken the decision to cancel all group activities, it means we have unfortunately had to take the decision to suspend all training courses, initially until April 30th.
We hope to be able to deliver training courses after the end of April, once government advice permits us to.
Please get in touch with the Training Team if you have any queries about future courses or current bookings.

Basic mechanical knowledge is a vital part of providing any kind of bike ride or cycling activity.
