To book please download and return relevant booking form:

The Velotech Gold Award (formerly Weldtech) is an accredited award recognised by the Bicycle Association, at the end of which the successful participants receive the Gold Award which is a recognised professional mechanics qualification.

The course is run over 28 hours (over four days – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday). Places are limited to four participants per course, and covers everything from fixing a puncture to a complete rebuild of a bike.

During the course the candidates are shown how to perform each task, then led through the procedure, and finally have to carry out the task unaided to demonstrate that they understand the procedure and can carry it out in a safe and competent manner.

The cost of a Velotech Gold Award course is £600 per person and is only available at the Edinburgh Bike Station.
