Home Mechanic Bike Maintenance Courses

Just need to snip this bit of excess cable off


Mobile Cycle Medic ran the first series of 1 day Basic Home Mechanic courses for CTC in Spring 2010. Since then over 75 courses have been held for Swindon Borough Council and Other Organisations such as Arval and The Defence Academy of The United Kingdom .  Attendees have thoroughly enjoyed the courses and as a result the feedback has been superb.


 I am currently delivering a weekly Bike Maintenance course to 12 pupils at St Joseph’s Catholic College.   I have a course scheduled for the Deference Academy of the UK and planning a course for Swindon Borough Council’s “Cycling for Health” team.  Could I run a course for your group or club?  Yes  call me to discuss  07962 118849.
