Bike touring is our very favouritest thing, so we're really excited to be offering this course for the first time this year in response to several requests. Hopefully timed just right for your summer adventure!
This full day course is for those lucky people planning to do a bike tour, maybe for the first time, who are wanting advice and practical instruction to give them the confidence to set off into the wide, blue yonder.
We will cover essential running maintenance such as punctures and brake/gear adjustments. We'll also look at common on-road issues such as broken spokes, rear derailleur damage, ripped tyres, snapped cables and broken chains (not trying to put you off here!) so at the very least you can limp on to the nearest bike shop.
We'll also make time to talk through preperation for your big ride, transporting a bike, luggage options, tools and spares to carry, and lots of other tasty topics. And speaking of tasty - tea, coffee and a home-made vegetarian lunch are all included in your ticket price.
