Workshop Content!

It is hoped that we will be able to cover most if not all of the content outlined below. The final content of the workshop may even be determined by the interest of participants and decided on the night.

Topics to be presented on at this stage include: Basic Tool Kit; Cleaning Bike; Basic Safety Check; Basic Bike Lube Routine; Tyre & Wheel Care (tubes - repairing a flat, removing & replacing tyres); Brakes -- adjustments; Gears -- adjustments.
