Do You Want to learn how to fix your bike? Great we can help you, come to one of our Bicycle Maintenance Courses at The Bike Station Perth. You will be learning with our professional mechanic and other cyclists in a nice and relaxing atmosphere, you will learn skills useful for any cyclist.
To take part on the course, you will need to bring your bike and please note, as it’s a hands on course you probably will get dirty, so don’t wear your best dress or suit!
During the course you will work on your bike so you will learn what is relevant to your bike, and how to fix your bike. However if you don’t have a bike, that’s not a problem, just let us know and we will sort something out for you. Also – if you have a specialist bike (Brompton, disk brakes, etc) please let us know when booking.
The course is divided into two 2 hour sessions. Each session costs £35 per person, and each covers different aspects of basic maintenance. There is no obligation to book both sessions: you can choose whatever is more relevant to your needs and existing skills.
As a special gesture all our participants will be able to purchase any new tools and accessories that they need, with a 10% discount on the evening of the course.
As an additional special offer, anyone who books both sessions, will receive a special goodie bag worth more than £15, containing some must-have cyclist essentials: a bottle of bike oil, a can of GT85 and a puncture repair kit).
