Dan (the other one) and Chris have done a great job in arranging a UTC bike maintenance session with Gill Cycles to run through all those tricky bike jobs we don’t know how to do or perhaps didn’t even know needed doing.
The main focus of the evening will be on helping those of us who are newer to cycling and bike maintenance, however there will be plenty of opportunity to cover more advanced questions and to ensure everyone’s steed is safe and running efficiently as we enter the new cycling season.
It’s being held at their shop/workshop so numbers are strictly limited to 25 – first come first served. Booking is via the UTC Facebook page, but if you’re not on FB, just drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get your name on the list.
- Monday 23rd March
- 18.30 pm
- Gill Cycles, Lightburn Industrial Estate
Unlike some of the other Monday night events, this will be more of a drop in session and not a talk, so if you have a specific bike problem you can bring it along so people can see how to fix it. Alternatively, if there’s anything you would just like to learn about there’ll be plenty of opportunity to ask. This way we’ll have a range of issues to cover and others can picks up tips at the same time. So this could be anything from clunky gears & how to adjust derailleurs; replacing a chain or cassette; brakes/disc brake adjustment; tyre wear and replacement; basic bike health checks, etc.
There’s also the normal UTC 10% discount on any goodies you might wish to purchase whilst in store.
See you there.
