WHY JOIN OUR COURSE?
There are many reasons, but firstly, you can save money by servicing your own bike. Weight up the cost of this one evening class against the cost of paying for regular servicing or even the cost of petrol driving to the bike shop! It's not hard to see how you're on to a winner. But what's more you will also have greater enjoyment biking, safe in the knowledge that your bike is in sound working order.
All classes are held in a friendly workshop environment with a maximum group size of four. We offer on site classes for companies, then specific road and mountain bike courses at our base in Ticknock, County Dublin. You can drop in beforehand for a tea or coffee and we will also break at the mid point for some fresh air. Changing facilities are available in the venue if you decide to cycle in.
