Learn how to fix the most common bike problems you might face out on a ride and find out the essential tools and spares to have with you.

Whatever you ride – mountain bike, road bike, e-bike – this workshop is for you!

Feel more confident while you’re out on a ride, by learning how to deal with the typical problems that can arise with your tyres, gears, chain or cables. You’ll also learn the essential tools and spares to carry with you and how to use them.

We will provide:

  • all the tools and equipment you’ll need to learn about roadside bike repairs
  • guided step-by-step instructions
  • organic, Fairtrade hot drinks and palm-oil free biscuits.

What to bring:

  • your bike
