These courses will be taking place at Stirchley Baths and are open to people of all abilities. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. There are two courses running back to back, please book onto the time you want using the links.

This FREE course is funded by the Celebrating Communities – Beyond Birmingham 2022 fund.

About the courses

Bike basics is all about giving you an understanding of how your bike should function, so you can identify when something is wrong and start repairing problems yourself. We’ll cover the ‘M’ check for safety, discuss the part names and functions, replace inner tubes and perform puncture repairs and then set up and adjust a set of brakes. At the end of this course you should have the confidence to diagnose some of the most common issues we can face with our bikes and understand the names and functions of all the parts.

All courses are taught in very small groups with plenty of hands-on time. We will provide training bikes to work on so you don’t need to bring your own. This course is ideal for someone with little or no experience of bicycle mechanics who wants to learn how to look after their own bike.
