Custom Class on a date of your choice
(Up to 3 people £75, up to 6 people £150)

If there is a particular aspect of the world of bike wizardry that you would like to learn, maybe more technical aspects like fork lower servicing or brake bleeds, or time to work on your own bike with instruction then we can custom create a session around you and your friends.


We can run a group session for up to 6 people which will give you two hours with two mechanics for £150. Gather some mates or work colleagues and split the bill, come to the workshop and learn what you want to learn, at your own pace with beers or coffee on the side. To book, give us a call and discuss your requirements and we will tailor a session for you.
