Bike Maintenance for Beginners


Our Basic Bike Maintenance course is an introduction to areas of bicycle repair and maintenance that can be completed without the need of using a professional cycle workshop, either at home or whilst out riding, using just a few basic tools. The aim is to get more from your bike.

It is meant as a starting block for those unfamiliar with cycle repair to gain the confidence to be able to tackle basic jobs, learn some new skills, pick up tips and know which jobs would be better performed by a qualified cycle mechanic.

It also allows those attending an understanding of the terminology, troubleshooting, set-up and adjustment of a bicycle, what parts are most likely to need regular replacement and how to care for the bicycle for optimal performance and reliable cycling.

Topics covered:

  • Setting-up your bike for comfort and efficiency.
  • Cleaning and lubricating your bike.
  • Essential safety checks.
  • Fixing a puncture.
  • Setting up brakes.
  • Setting up gears

The workshop will take place on Sunday 12th May, from 10am to 12pm. Cycle Saviours will be open from 09:30am. We are based at 8, Hollin Lane, Stacey Bushes, MK12 6HT.

Bring your own bike as long as it is in a reasonable condition.
