Learn to maintain your bike - 5 session course

A Lambeth Cyclists course, run by a Brixton Cycles mechanic, at Pedal Power Kennington.

Five Wednesdays, starting February 16th, 6.45pm – 8.45pm.
£55 or £5 if on Income Related Benefits (Opportunity for refund if you volunteer at Pedal Power!)

The trainer, Simon Bendel, has had excellent feedback from earlier classes.. As one participant put it:
"Simon is a fantastic, patient teacher who makes sure everyone "gets it". I found the course to be great value, having paid for itself several times over in savings on shop servicing. Couldn't recommend it enough."

The subjects covered will be:
* 1st week: general intro
* 2nd week: brakes
* 3rd week: gears
* 4th week: wheels/tyres
* 5th week: fix any particular problems you have, follow up from previous weeks.
And you will get a handout at the end of each week, as a reminder.
Each class will consist of 8 participants, working in pairs on their own bikes.
Tools and workstands will be provided. Some spares can be bought at the classes.

The course is held at Pedal Power Kennington in the Lilian Baylis Community Hub, Lollard Street, Kennington, SE11 6PY

Preference will be given to London Cycling Campaign ( members who live or work in Lambeth. People often join the LCC to get a place as the classes are so popular.
