These events follow on from the successful classes held during the summer of 2021. The classes will be held on the first Wednesday of the month during the months of May, June, July and August 2022.

Note that some of the classes are women only and some are mixed men and women. So check your chosen dates carefully depending on your preference. These classes are very popular and always get fully booked, so make sure you book your place as soon as possible!

Riders of all types of cycles are invited to register for the classes which are being run in collaboration with Bren Bikes staff and volunteers.

We aim to share with you some hints and tips on setting up your bike for comfort and a few necessary maintenance tasks related to tyres, brakes, gears and drivetrain, with the objective of getting your bike running smoothly. Steve Fidler, the workshop supervisor at Bren Bikes, will demonstrate techniques for you and volunteers will assist.

Preparation: Please turn up with a bike, and a spare inner tube (if the bike has a flat tyre). Please bring a few Allen keys, spanners (8, 9 10, 11, 13, 15mm) and tyre levers, if you have them. Note that this activity will take place in the open air so please dress accordingly if the weather is poor.
