Bike Maintenance Course
Saturday 10 Sep 2016

Kingston Council's Cycling Team is offering practical bike maintenance training suitable for those of us who may be unsure about how to adjust our brakes, have noisy gears, dread fixing a puncture etc etc! These are practical, hands on workshops for beginners led by fully qualified bike mechanics.

Topics covered include:

  • Complete an ‘M Check’. This will allow you to check key parts of your bike for wear and nip in the bud any developing problems.
  • Adjust and balance your brakes and replace your brake pads.
  • Make minor adjustments to your saddle, handlebars, brake levers etc that will make your riding experience more comfortable.
  • Remove your rear wheel, inner-tube and tyre and repair a puncture.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
