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 in just a few days, 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.


The Course:

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. From checking the safety of your bike and identifying common faults to carrying out trail/road side repairs such as replacing tubes and repairing your chain and routine maintenance and cleaning.

You will learn...

  • Bicycle anatomy
  • Safety checking and fault recognition
  • Repairing a broken chain
  • Replacing an inner tube the easy way
  • On the fly brake adjustment
  • On the fly gear adjustment
  • Chain wear and component checking
  • Gear selection
  • Cleaning Advice
  • Lubes and greases

Plus loads of top advice from our industry professional who will be on hand to take your questions throughout the session.
