Due to the latest Covid rules issued on Friday 11th September on group sizes and social distancing, it will not be possible to run our courses effectively.

We are therefore cancelling the September and October courses, but keeping the November course open pending further updates and seeing if the situation improves.

If the November course can go ahead, we will give priority to those booked on earlier courses to attend.

Ever wanted to know how to service your bike?

Not the engine stripping, race tuning, complete rebuild type of knowledge gained by qualified mechanics; just simple, basic tasks like adjusting a chain, oil changing and how to carry out basic service checks?

Even if you don’t intend to work on your own bike, having that knowledge will make you more aware of your bike’s condition, its safety and the likely cost of paying someone to carry out that servicing. As part of our CBT, A2 and DAS courses at Bike Smart we cover very basic service checks but we are constantly being asked to include additional training so that individuals can look after their bikes more effectively.

With this need in mind, we have produced a course of training designed to show riders how to carry out a basic service on their own machine. Basic servicing is easily within the ability of most riders and minimal tools are required. During the course, students will be encouraged to repeat the exercises on their own bike under supervision, which means that students could save the cost of the course by servicing their own bike!

The course is usually run on the last weekend of every month. Places are limited to a maximum of 6 people, this is to ensure that every person is able to get hands on experience under supervision.

The weekend course is only £155 per person and is run from 9.30 am to around 4.30 pm each day. As places are limited it is recommended to book well in advance, although late bookings are sometimes available. To book your place, please call our school number 01444 441969 or send us an email message and we will get back to you with more details and availability of places.
