Essential Bike Maintenance with TheCompleteCyclist .com – Uttoxeter
Our first course filled up in just a few days, so move fast to join RideStaffs and TheCompleteCyclist.com for our second Essential Bike Maintenance Course
To meet demand after our first bike maintenance course filled up, we’ve added a second Essential Bike Maintenance course to the calendar – this time it’s midweek, after hours at Bear Coffee. Just in time for our Spring Forward sportive!
What’s the limiting factor on your riding?
Is it your legs? Or are you worried about breaking down far from home?
Most mechanical failures can either be fixed on the hoof or prevented in the first place with a little know how and basic bike maintenance skills.
So we’ve teamed up with TheCompleteCyclist.com to give you the knowledge and the confidence to keep your bike on the road and, when things do go wrong, get yourself home.
Our first course has sold out – so move fast to grab a space this time!
When you join us at Bear Coffee in Uttoxeter, we’ll greet you with coffee and cake to get you fuelled up for 3 hours of Essential Bike Maintenance and Repair training.
