Build Your Own Bike is a course for small groups… You will start with a bare frame and finish with your own fully-built mountain bike.
The course includes 16 hours in the Bike Station’s fully-equipped training workshop. The time can be arranged to suit the group’s needs – e.g. two hours once a week for eight weeks, or three afternoons in the same week.
You will also enjoy a day’s mountain biking at Glentress Forest mountain bike centre, supported by qualified mountain bike leaders.
At the completion of the course, the Bike Station arranges an afternoon event – either cycling the finished bikes back to your group’s location (where suitable, and using local cycle paths) or a Northshore event.
Typical Build Your Own Bike courses run with groups of six. An example of this is this case study with the Venture Trust.
