This class, in partnership with Gyle, has been designed specifically with the needs of the community in mind. Our aim is to make sport more accessible by giving people the skills to ensure their bikes are in safe, working order. This class will be held in a fully renovated space focused on the needs of the community from A-Z. To participate in the class you will need to bring your own bike, so that you can learn exactly how your bike works.

We’ll show you: - How to give your bike an M-check (pre-ride inspection) -Cleaning and maintenance guidance -How to replace an inner tube -How to identify brake issues -How to identify gearing issues It’s essential that the bike you bring to practice with is rideable.

    We all benefited from the experience and so can you as Decathlon bosses will be hosting more courses in the same venue in the coming weeks. Watch for announcements on social media. We said our thanks and made our way back into the mist and drizzle for the ride home. Thanks to Decathlon for this. We all felt more confident about dealing with roadside emergencies now.
