Sign up for cycle maintenance classes starting 11 September 2012

Depressing as it may seem as we sit in the summer sun autumn is just around the corner – is your bike in tip-top condition for the longer nights and wetter weather?

Cycle maintenance on

Would you like to learn to do basic maintenance to avoid unnecessary costs and delays?

 Come on our cycle maintenance classes, a new set of which will start on Tuesday 11 September 2012.

The course runs over five two hour sessions on Tuesday evenings and covers all aspects of cycle maintenance – with a maximum of eight participants per course you will be working on your own bike.

The course costs £55 – excellent value and instruction is by a qualified Brixton Cycles mechanic.

Contact Chris James – if you are interested in signing up for the course.

We run the course several times a year so we will put you on the list for next course if all the places have gone.

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.”
