Here at Cycle Training Manchester, we believe it is important that once you ride a bike, you also know the basics of how to keep your bike maintained. Whether you just want to learn how to mend a puncture or gain the knowledge to do more in depth repairs on your bike, we have a cycle maintenance course to suit you. We ask that you bring your bike along to the sessions as there is no better bike to learn on than the one you normally ride. Each course is adjusted to suit your requirements.
Please see below for the types courses on offer:
Beginner Maintenance: Covers areas such as how to mend a puncture, adjusting handlebars, adjusting seat, adjusting brakes (including changing brake blocks/pads).

Advanced Maintenance: Covers areas such as Hub disassembly, sturmey archer adjustment, derailleur adjustment, bottom bracket disassembly etc.
Who is this for?

Do I need anything?
We do ask that you bring a bike with you and we will work on that. After all it is best to learn on the bike you will be riding and repairing in the future when you leave us!
Will I recieve a recognised qualification?
Taking part in one of our cycle maintenance courses does not give you an accredited qualification. These courses are designed to give you an understanding of how to maintain your bike for personal use/riding.
