New series of Lambeth Cyclists cycle maintenance classes starts 14 June 2011 in Brixton

Cycle maintenance on

Lambeth Cyclists are organising more cycle maintenance classes this summer: the next set of five classes will start on 14 June 2011

Feedback from earlier classes shows they have been very well received. As one participant put it:

“Simon is a fantastic, patient teacher who makes sure everyone “gets it”. I found the course to be great value, having paid for itself several times over in savings on shop servicing. Couldn’t recommend it enough.”

The Classes
A new set of classes will run for five consecutive Tuesdays, on the following dates:

14 June 2011
21 June 2011
28 June 2011
5 July 2011
12 July 2011

Each class will start at 18.30 and last for 2 hours. The trainer, Simon Bendel, works at Brixton Cycles

The classes cover

1st week: general introduction
2nd week: brakes
3rd week: gears
4th week: wheels/ tyres
5th week: fix any particular problems you have, follow up from previous weeks.

You will get a handout at the end of each week.

Each class will consist of 8 participants, working in pairs on their own bikes. Tools and workstands will be provided. Some spares can be bought at the classes.

The classes will be hosted at:

Lambeth Accord Building
336 Brixton Rd
London SW9 7AA

Preference will be given to London Cycling Campaign members who live or work in Lambeth. People often join the LCC to get a place as the classes are so popular. Join LCC now

The cost is £55 per person. If you are on income related benefits you only need to pay £5 (with confirmation).

We will then reserve your place and (assuming places are available) ask you to send a Cheque for £55 (or £5 if on income related benefits) payable to Lambeth Cyclists. We will need proof of your connection with Lambeth (if not from the address) together with your LCC membership details and documents showing your eligibility for the reduced rate (if relevant). If there are no places left we will put you on a waiting list for the next set of classes – we run them several times a year.
