Chairman Chris has been giving it some schmooze with the lovely Sharon at Topmark Cycles and they’ve arranged a private UTC bike maintenance session to run through all those tricky bike jobs we don’t know how to do or perhaps didn’t even know needed doing. There’s also the opportunity to discuss getting a proper bike fitting sorted and get some nicely discounted gear, because everyone loves UTC, right?
There’ll be time spent on helping those of us who are newer to cycling and bike maintenance, and 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 20 – 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 21st March
- 17.15-19.00 pm
- Topmark Cycles, 108 Greengate St, Barrow-in-Furness, LA14 1BG
Unlike some of the other Monday night events we’ve done, this will be more of a drop in session and not a talk, so if you have a specific bike question, shout it out on the night so everyone can share the knowledge!
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 & adjusting 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.
Also, because she’s lovely – she’s also managed to sort out £10 off the normal £75 bike fit price if you book on night!!
See you there.
